Research & Scholarship

PSPA faculty and students conduct research in multiple facets. From exploring methods for alternative fuels and environmental management to improving human resource management and health care, students take on many challenges in the changing political environment. Students also investigate politics, policy, budgeting and fiscal policy, race and public policy, transportation policy, economic development, comparative politics and administration, immigration policy and administrative law.

Students conduct research in-house and also partner with our affiliated research institutes and centers. They receive financial support through funded research, university sponsorship and scholarship. See how doctoral students assist in research projects aimed at streamlining transportation issues and improving economic conditions through rail revitalization.

Check out a documentary produced by five of our MPPA students from the spring 2010 semester. The students took part in Dr. Bethany Stich's class about democracy and capitalism. Their semester project was to produce a film that explored this topic. The students chose to examine the driving cost of energy efficiency in Mississippi and the United States in "Green v. Green."
