Politics (MA) | Master's degree | Humanities & Culture | On Campus | 2 years | The New School | USA

The Department of Politics at The New School for Social Research takes a distinctive approach to the study of politics. We emphasize the theoretical dimension of political analysis with regard to both political explanation and normative evaluation. We focus on the historical roots of contemporary political forces and problems. Faculty members are interested in how institutions shape political life, in the intersection of political and cultural processes, and in classical and current conceptions of political economy. The curriculum covers historical and contemporary movements and struggles to reshape power and redefine its possibilities. Exploring whether the exercise of power benefits the few or promotes the welfare of the many, and the ways in which struggles for power advance or obstruct the possibility for a better world, students are trained to think deeply and critically about issues of social injustice and domination and liberation. The Department of Politics contributes to the community of scholars that is The New School for Social Research through cross-listed courses, research projects, and conferences.
