M.A. Democracy & Governance

Educating Leaders for Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

Practitioners and scholars in fields as diverse as public policy, development, international relations, and security studies increasingly recognize that successful programs in their fields require effective and accountable governance.

The Democracy and Governance Program seeks to understand the foundations of democratic and responsive government, and how policymakers can create and implement policies to achieve these objectives and prepares students for careers in democracy assistance, governance reform, politics, and international affairs. The program provides graduate training with its Masters in Democracy and Governance (M.A.) and advances research in the areas of democratic change and governance reform through the Center for Democracy and Civil Society (CDACS).

CDACS is a member of the National Endowment for Democracy’s Network of Democracy Research Institutes, conducts scholarly research, hosts speakers and conferences, and publishes the annual journal Democracy and Society.
