BA in Political Science/Master of Public Service Administration (MPSA) Texas A&M University



Course info


Political science is a social science that investigates collective decision-making. It is concerned with governments, individuals’ attitudes and choices, and the interactions between governing institutions and mass behavior. Among other things, political science addresses power, authority, influence, identity, ethics, law, liberty, justice, wealth, and violence.

The study of political science introduces students to a powerful set of analytical tools for understanding interactions within and among groups of people. These include systematic knowledge of recurring patterns and problems in political life and methods for collecting and analyzing data and other forms of evidence. Studying political science also cultivates critical thinking and effective communication and prepares students for active citizenship, professional success, and lifelong learning.

The Political Science Department offers a joint degree program in conjunction with the Bush School of Government and Public Service. This program enables students to receive either a B.A. or B.S. in political science and a Master of Public Service and Administration (MPSA) degree in five years.

The Political Science Department also offers a joint degree program in conjunction with the University of Essex. This program enables students to receive either a B.A. or B.S. in political science and a Master of Arts or a Master of Science in Political Science in four and a half years.

Students admitted into this program will be enrolled in Bush School graduate courses with an undergraduate classification for the fall of their fourth year and will be re-classified as degree seeking master’s degree students upon completing 120 credit hours, typically in the following semester. These credit hours must include all specific course prerequisites for a baccalaureate degree in Political Science, as well as the courses required by the College of Liberal Arts and by Texas A&M University for an undergraduate degree. Students will be required to complete the same two-year, 48 hour curriculum as other students admitted to the Bush School’s MPSA program.
