Students complete 30 credits during the one-year MA program, including coursework on the form and function of the global political order, the histories and evolution of specific global problems and how groups and individuals have attempted to address them, and skills-based courses that prepare students to enter the workforce.
The centerpiece of the MA Program in Global Studies curriculum is the internship, where students get an on-the-ground perspective on how nonstate and civil society actors address transnational problems.
