In the Master’s degree programs, students concentrate on one primary area of study. The unit requirements for the DPG degrees are as follows:
MAP American Politics Political Philosophy
36 units and a thesis, OR 48 units
MAPP Public Policy
CGU also offers a new transdisciplinary M.A. that allows students to create their own M.A. across 2 fields. To use Public Policy as one part of an interfield M.A. 24 units are required.
Final Paper Portfolio
For all Master’s degree programs in DPG, during their last semester in the program students must provide the program office a copy of a paper that they wrote their first semester in the degree program they are pursuing along with a paper they wrote later that they consider an example of their best work in their respective degree program. (These papers will be used by CGU’s accrediting agency).
