The POIR program does not accept applicants for a Master of Arts degree in POIR. If a student admitted in the POIR doctoral program does not have a master's degree, the department strongly recommends the student completes the requirements for the MA in POIR in his/her course of work toward the PhD degree. A student admitted to the doctoral program may also, at the recommendation of the department, earn a terminal MA degree.

A student may obtain an MA in POIR by fulfilling the following requirements: a minimum of 28 units in the POIR Program, including POIR 600 , POIR 610  and POIR 611 , and the approval of a substantive paper.
