Overview

Opportunities

The International Security Studies certificate from The University of Arizona Global consists of four courses or 12 units. Courses are drawn from a variety of topics, such as conflict in the Middle East, climate change, foreign policy of Russia, American foreign policy, American national security, international security, global political economy, European security, terrorism and terrorist networks, energy security, and Japanese and Chinese nationalism. 

Students who register for this certificate program take the same courses as students who are enrolled in the Master of Arts program in International Security. Moreover, all courses taken through the certificate program will count toward the M.A. degree. Students with a GPA of less than 3.0 are encouraged to apply for the certificate first.

Programme Structure

  • All courses are taught by regular UA faculty members. However, none of these courses are available on campus, and all of them have been designed specifically for the certificate program and the M.A. degree. 
  • Each course is six to eight weeks long. Students can register for up to three courses per semester.
