The master of arts in government gives students the tools to examine governmental and social institutions in our society, explore areas of reform, and, most importantly, bring about change. The program combines the theory and practice of government, politics, and policy-making for those who hope to make a significant difference in Washington, D.C., and beyond.
The Johns Hopkins MA in government was designed for working adults with specialized skills in a particular field but who want a broader perspective of government to position them for leadership in politics and administration. In class, you’ll contribute to lively discussions, build analytical skills, and learn strategies for engaging in original research. While our courses are designed around the latest scholarly and scientific knowledge, their true focus is to provide you with the practical skills necessary for solving governmental, political, and policymaking problems of today.
