The Best Strategy? Having One, For Starters
Understanding how to leverage your passion for a cause or a candidate is only the first step of a successful campaign. At the George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management, we game out real-world scenarios in the classroom, teaching you the tools of the trade from the masters who wield them best. From consultants, media gurus, pollsters and speechwriters to even former winning candidates themselves, our DC connections will not only serve you in the classroom, but also in campaign offices, legislative suites, and news bureaus that shape the entire political world. Before you win elections, advance legislation and prevail in the battle for public opinion, learn how itâ€™s done best, from the very best.
To succeed on "The Hill", professionals working in the legislative arena need a clear understanding of how Congress operates, how legislative procedures shape outcomes, and how entities like the Executive Branch, lobbyists and constituents influence the work of the legislature.
The Master's in Political Management program offers innovative experiential learning opportunities for professionals involved in all aspects of politics and public policy, from lobbying and advocacy to international politics, campaigns and public relations.Â
The GW Master's Degree in Strategic Public Relations follows an innovative approach to building professional credentials that will position you to excel in this challenging profession. Youâ€™ll master core public relations skills and the practical application of strategic thinking.
