The Political Science Department at Colorado State University offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts (M.A.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees as well as a graduate certificate in political economy. Our curriculum includes coursework in traditional political science sub-fields, including American politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, and public policy and administration. The Department has a unique specialization in environmental politics and policy, which is the emphasis of the Doctoral program. M.A. students may select environmental politics and policy as one of their two sub-field areas of study. Graduate teaching assistantships are available on a competitive basis.
All graduate programs are individually designed to fit the student’s educational background and career objectives. Graduates with the M.A. degree are recruited by a wide variety of local, state, federal and non-governmental agencies as well as the private sector. Many M.A. students continue in the doctoral program at CSU or at other universities. Recipients of the Ph.D. degree are employed in research organizations, universities and public service positions.
Due to the unique focus on environmental politics and policy, the program welcomes and attracts M.A. and Ph.D. candidates from diverse academic backgrounds and careers who all share an interest in the political dimensions of environmental protection.
