GRADUATE PROGRAMS IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS offer a gateway to a myriad of meaningful career paths: Development, diplomacy, global policy, regional studies, strategic studies, and environmental policy are a few promising choices, but the possibilities are endless.
In this FP Guide, you will meet:
- A retired Marine Corps three-star general who flew combat operations in Iraq and Bosnia, has a PhD in philosophy, and now directs an MA program’s cybersecurity concentration.
- The leader of a new program in economic diplomacy at a top global policy school near the U.S.–Mexico border that is also a go-to center for studying cross-border relations.
- A student who is pursuing an online MS in international affairs to support her interest in exploring how the arts can impact peacekeeping and transform conflict.
- An international affairs alumna who played a major role in negotiating the U.S.–China climate accord that paved the way for the landmark global Paris Agreement in 2016.
And other inspiring faculty, programs, students, and graduates.
You will see how international affairs graduates leverage their graduate school training to change the world through careers in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
“International affairs programs equip graduates with an understanding of regions, languages, and global trends. They provide skills in project management, problem-solving, teamwork, and analysis. Cross-cultural training is not an add-on to the curriculum; rather, students live it every day as they mix with classmates from a diverse range of backgrounds.”
