  • The concentrations in the Graduate Program in International Affairs are more than collections of courses. They are areas in which students can link theory, social research, and practice in building careers as scholars or practitioners in international affairs. Currently, students choose from five concentrations:

    Each concentration has a foundation course as well as a wide range of electives from which students can choose. The concentrations also offer a range of opportunities for applied research, as well as connections to the practice curriculum through International Field Programs and Practicum in International Affairs projects. In addition, the concentrations sponsor invited guest lectures, organize workshops and events, and create working groups around topics of particular interest to students.

    Students completing an MA or MS at GPIA are required to fulfill a concentration by taking a “foundation course” as well as three concentration electives.
