Graduate Degree Programs
The Bliss Institute, in conjunction with the Department of Political Science and the School of Law, offers two graduate degrees. Both degree programs offer unique opportunities for prospective graduate students interested in careers in politics or political consulting.
Certificate in Applied Politics
Citizen participation in politics is the backbone of democracy. The individuals who run political campaigns, contact public officials, and debate issues while holding jobs and raising families are critical to the future of the country. The Bliss Institute encourages such grassroots citizenship through the Certificate in Applied Politics.
Internships offered through the Bliss Institute and Department of Political Science provide students with the opportunity to experience practical politics firsthand by working for local, state, and national party organizations, candidates, elected officials, interest groups, and other relevant organizations.
