Aspiring journalist debating between B.A. or M.A. in pol sci


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I've got approximately one year remaining on my English undergrad, then I have to decide what to focus on in regards to my career. I plan on writing on international affairs or Canadian politics, but I'm unsure as how to approach this goal. After much research into the backgrounds of many successful political journalists, there seems to be (at least in Canada) a great deal with Masters in either History, Economics, or Political Science. I'm just wondering how much more educated people feel they are about pol sci after attaining a masters in pol sci vs their undergrads? Was there a huge learning curve? Or was it simply a repetition of the undergrad courses in a bit more detail? Thanks
