Introduction to Graduate Program

Core courses emphasize three topic areas: political theory, public administration, and international relations. Students work on establishing solid theoretical foundations before moving on to classes offering practical analyses of government institutions and administrative processes. Subsequent coursework is aimed at international analyses and comparative politics.
