  1. Hello All, I am a recent graduate in Political Science and Latin American Studies, and looking to pursue a Masters Degree. I am very interested in Public Policy issues and implementation as well as in Political Economy and Development. I would like to pursue a career in NGO's, government offices, and/or international institutions. From my perspective, pursuing a MPA seems like pursuing a another Political Science degree but much more rigorous. I point out the similarities since these discipline deal with broad issues and not necessarily specializing in a particular "field." That being said, it seems that a MA in economics provide both a specialization--making myself more marketable--and intellectually challenging. Yes, I have taken some economic courses and I am contentiously reading books on economics, questioning why I never majored in this discipline. Since I never majored in economics, I would have to take about 8-10 courses (which will take another 2 years part-time) to become a competitive candidate in the graduated programs I would love to go to. From the interest that I stated, I would like like to get any insight, advice or critique on my potential plan. Also, I would really appreciate any input or personal advice regarding a choice of program in light of my interests and career objectives. I'm looking at both discipline at the wrong way? Thank you in advance for your time and I look forward to reading your insights!
