Fields of concentration include: U.S. foreign policy and international relations, conflict and cooperation, international political economy and development, interdependence and transnationalism, and comparative and regional studies, modeling and simulation, and cultural studies.
The M.A. requires 33 credits, of which at least 27 must be at the 600 level or above. The required course work for all M.A. students includes the basic methodology course (IS 600), but does not include any courses needed for demonstrating foreign language competency. M.A. candidates writing theses will incorporate into their 33-credit program six credits of directed research on the thesis.
