Hi everyone, My application cycle isn't until Fall of 2021, but I've always been a planner, and with more time on my hands I've been looking a bit deeper into potential programs. As my title stated, I would ultimately like to go into the field of political communications, and I have a few programs I'm planning on applying to. I definitely want a program that is more applied, and where there are good professor-student relationship opportunities (i.e. just not a 'number'), and like the distance from FL to the programs I have listed. A bit about me: I am currently a Junior studying Political Science and minoring in Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Central Florida. My GPA is 3.78 and my GRE is a 3.5 analytical writing, 163 verbal and a 147 Quan. I have political internship experience and recommenders set up. Would love any suggestions, feedback, and/or personal experiences anyone has had with these programs, or other recommendations! I want to find a balance with a degree that will help me obtain my goals but also be flexible for future use. I have starred my current top choices, mind you this is of course dependant on financial aid and visiting the schools I get accepted to. Thank you so much! American University M.A. in Political Communication* (GRE optional) George Washington University M.A. in Media and Strategic Communication* (GRE optional) James Madison University M.A. in Communication and Advocacy* (GRE not used) Louisiana State University M.A in Mass Communication (Political Comms track) Wake Forest University M.A. in Communications (Political Comms Electives) University of Florida M.A. in Political Campaigning
Graduated in 2013 and was planning on attending law school, but decided that I ultimately do not want to practice law. Instead, I'd like to work in congressional politics. What MPA (or similar) programs would be recommended for someone with: 3.7 GPA Years of teaching experience abroad Interest in working on the Hill My top choice so far is GWU's MPA. I'm also considering taking the GRE to expand my options, but after months of studying for the LSAT the thought of studying for an entirely new test is daunting. Thanks!
Wondering if anyone has applied to and/or heard from programs in political communication namely from George Washington (Media and Public Affairs) or American? Like most people here, I'm obsessively worried my stats aren't good enough .
