M.A. in Democracy and Governance
The Master of Arts in Democracy and Governance offers rigorous preparation for individuals interested in professional or scholarly careers in the fields of democracy assistance and governance reform. Situated in the heart of Washington D.C., this multi-disciplinary degree is the most comprehensive and unique of its kind in the United States.
Practitioners and scholars in fields as diverse as public policy, international development, and security studies increasingly recognize that successful programs in their fields require effective and accountable governance. The Masters of Arts in Democracy and Governance seeks to understand the foundations of democratic and responsive government, how policymakers can create and implement policies to achieve their objectives, and prepares students for both careers and further study in these areas. We offer students the opportunity to combine courses taught by leading scholars and practitioners. The small size of our program helps ensure that each student has unparalleled access to exceptional academic and career opportunities.
Beyond providing academic training, the Democracy and Governance Program advances research in the areas of democratic change and governance reform through the Center for Democracy and Civil Society (CDACS). CDACS conducts scholarly research, undertakes policy advocacy, hosts speakers and conferences, and publishes the biannual journal Democracy and Society.
