The Transatlantic Affairs program of Tufts University trains a new generation of leaders to assume important roles in the area of transatlantic affairs.


Develop skills on both sides of the Atlantic

Offered jointly with the College of Europe at their Bruges or Warsaw campus, the MATA offers a unique opportunity to study on both sides of the Atlantic, providing students with the specialized skills and international perspective they need to manage cross-border issues in multicultural settings.

Become a leader in transatlantic affairs

The 21st century brings complex international challenges that are best addressed by the United States and the European Union working in partnership. The Transatlantic Affairs program of Tufts University prepares students to tackle these challenges by developing their leadership skills across key areas, focusing on the interplay of economics, diplomacy, and law. Our graduates have secured high-level positions at international organizations like NATO and the United Nations, and play leadership roles in private corporations, consultancies, and law firms.

Two campuses, two continents, one integrated curriculum

The two-year program is structured so that students spend a year on each side of the Atlantic, with one cohort beginning the program at Fletcher, and the other starting at the College of Europe. Year one focuses on coursework. Fletcher-based students complete classes that span international law and organizations; diplomacy, history and politics; and economics and international business. Students in Europe choose from five different tracks based on their area of interest: interdisciplinary studies; economic studies; international relations and diplomacy; legal studies; or political and governance studies.

In their second year, students complete a high-level internship at an international or national institution within the corporate or civil society sector. Students who spent year one in Europe complete their internship in the United States; those who spent their first year in the U.S. base themselves in Europe.
