The Masters of International Studies at North Carolina State University combines a core curriculum with a 15-hour regional, topical, professional, or technical specialization, such as environment and sustainable development, economic development, East Asia, Europe, public administration, or forestry, to name just a few options.
The MIS is designed to be a terminal, professional degree.
Upon graduation, most students move into jobs in:
- government service
- non-profit management
- student services in higher education (international students, study abroad)
- the private sector.
The strength of the program is its diversity of faculty from many different disciplines and small class size. In most classes, students are able to interact closely with faculty and fellow students in a seminar format that provides an excellent environment for the exchange of ideas. The richness of the student body from many countries around the world enhances this interaction.
