The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in International Studies

The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in International Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide a broad foundation for analytical thinking and problem solving regarding international issues, cultural and policy analysis, and global governance.

This interdisciplinary program prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of a global world by providing them with the appropriate knowledge, tools, and skills to understand, function, and work effectively and collaboratively in an increasingly interdependent and multinational world.

The M.A. in International Studies is recognized both within and outside of the academy as an appropriate advanced degree for those pursuing further academic study or planning careers in many of the international aspects of contemporary society including culture analysis, politics, health and nutrition, business, art, architecture, engineering, communications, and environmental studies.
