An ideal location, highly trained and respected faculty, and countless networking opportunities make our Master of Science in Political Science program both unique and rewarding for your career. Suffolk offers you two distinct tracks for specialized training:
Professional Politics Concentration
Gain a solid base of academic knowledge and then hone the practical skills that will prepare you for work as a lobbyist, campaign manager, or consultant, or leader in the government or nonprofit arenas. You’ll master topics like legislative organization and function, party politics and voting, and writing and data analysis in public policy.
International Relations Concentration
This concentration prepares you to make a difference on a truly global scale. If your interests lie in policy development and analysis spanning cultures and geographic borders, choose this option. You’ll focus on international political economy, international organizations, human rights, and regional politics (the Americas, East Asia, Europe, or the Middle East).
