The Political Science M.A Program at CSULB is a competitive and demanding program for ambitious students interested in national and international politics. Applicants should have excellent academic records and demonstrate strong analytic and writing skills.
A Master’s degree in political science provides a strong foundation for careers in government, the law, academics, business, international organizations, education, and public service. A political science M.A. can be the basis for further study leading to a law degree, Ph.D., or other advanced degree.
The M.A. program in the Department of Political Science at CSULB allows students to acquire conceptual depth, learn methodological tools, and further develop their critical thinking abilities. Seminars are small and students have the opportunity to engage with their instructors, and participate actively in class discussions.
The program is taught by instructors actively involved in research on a variety of topics with contemporary political relevance.
