Our M.A. programs offer foundational training in the study of politics. Although many of our students embark on successful professional careers, a number of them choose to pursue a Ph.D. or a law degree, a clear indication of our commitment to providing our M.A. students with both practical skills and sound theoretical knowledge.
Students pursue the following degree program: a Master of Arts in Politics. A Master of Arts in International Relations and a joint MA program in International Relations and Journalism are now available through the International Relations Program
Students who pursue a Master of Arts in Politics specialize in one of the traditional areas of focus including Comparative Politics, International Affairs, Political Economy, and Political Theory. They may also pursue a joint concentration in Political Economy Analysis with the NYU Alexander Hamilton Center or a concentration in International Politics and Business.
NYU’s rich resources support study on a very wide range of subjects. Students and faculty in the M.A. programs participate in numerous seminars, workshops, and colloquia, making for a vibrant intellectual and professional community.
Located in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, NYU offers an unparalleled academic setting. New York City has a rich intellectual, social, and cultural life of which our students take full advantage.
