1) The Johns Hopkins University, Kreiger School of Arts and Sciences – MA Government

I believe I have mentioned my love for the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences on this blog before and especially LOVE how Johns Hopkins continues to offer top quality programs in a flexible way.  The MA in Government is actually a relatively new program amongst the current AAP (Advanced Academic programs) that are currently offered.  However, I think this program is amazing! I think the potential to network with professionals in the District of Columbia is invaluable for aspiring government leaders.  Also, the faculty and student body are sure to be motivated and high achieving professionals.
