Overview

MA in International Public Affairs (IPA) at Central European University (CEU)   captures two dimensions of study: on the one hand, the international, which includes governance on the regional, global and transnational levels; and on the other hand, the public, which includes interaction among the government, private and the voluntary sector.  After the first term of compulsory courses in public policy, politics, economics, and international relations, IPA students must choose one of two specializations for the next three terms of their MA: (i) Democracy and Rule of Law or (ii) Policy and Governance. The final two terms of the second year are devoted to a mandatory thesis.

The MA in International Public Affairs is open to students with undergraduate degrees in social sciences, humanities, law and related subjects.

Overarching Goal of the Program

The overarching aim of the program is to provide students with a solid conceptual grounding in international dimensions of public affairs that will prepare them for their future roles as policy-makers, advisors, and analysts in government, international organizations and non-governmental organizations or in journalism, thinks tanks and academia. Through the courses included in the core curricula, the course is designed to give graduates a broad interdisciplinary base that draws on the disciplines of economics, international relations, politics and public policy.
