Graduate Programs

International Relations, MA

The International Relations MA (MAIR) Program equips individuals with the skills needed to work in international organizations, globally-oriented national or local government agencies, nonprofit or non-governmental organizations, international business consulting, or to continue on to an academic career.


Program Strengths

Our program is jointly offered by the Department of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts, and the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance in the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies.  This gives our students a unique, multidisciplinary perspective with which to approach the study of international politics.
