Students in the M.A. program pursue a variety of careers and the program gives students the opportunity for exposure in some of these fields. Our graduates have advanced to graduate schools and careers in government and public service, journalism, law, and business, and to Ph.D. programs in political science, other social sciences, and other graduate fields of study.
