Learn the structure and operation of politics and power.
You know that a career in government or international affairs would be greatly enhanced by the knowledge of politics and power that you gain from earning a graduate degree in political science, especially one from Brooklyn College. Our widely respected — and frequently published — faculty will help you explore the political, economic and social issues that compose and affect both the domestic and foreign arenas at many levels, from individual people and single countries to groups of countries that are joined either geographically or in political alliances or economic blocs. You will learn to appraise, analyze and research information within the context of both contemporary and historic periods. By concentrating in political science, international affairs, or urban politics and administration, you'll sharpen your focus on what intrigues you most and begin your upward trajectory to the career you desire.
