Welcome to Graduate Studies in the Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science offers two graduate degrees, the Master of Public Administration (MPA), and the Master of Science in Security Studies (MSSS), in addition to one graduate certificate program, the Certificate in Security Studies. We also oversee admission to the Graduate Certificate in Community Health Administration. The MPA program at ECU is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA).

We are proud of our programs and would like to hear from you. If you have additional questions about ECU, the MPA program, the MSSS degree, or the Graduate Certificates in Security Studies or Community Health Administration, please feel free to contact the Political Science Department, or me personally.

Thank you for your interest!

Dr. Robert J. Thompson
