Certificate in Professional Politics

This program is focused on training in a growing academic area - professional politics.  Students will be provided with exposure to theory and hands-on learning experience that focus on applied skills and settings, including campaign management, media and politics, polling, public policy, and lobbying.  Our goal is that this specialized education, and the credential it affords, will assist students in developing expertise, which may be applied in academic and professional opportunities after graduation.  The internship serves as a capstone experience and must be fulfilled in a setting relevant to professional politics.

For more information on specific classes, see our Professional Politics Certificate information in the KSU Undergraduate Catalog.  Students who have satisfied all requirements, must complete the online petition in order to be awarded the certificate.  If you have questions or concerns, contact Dr. Jeff DeWitt, Program Coordinator, Certificate in Professional Politics.
