The Masters of International Studies at North Carolina State University is a professional interdisciplinary degree program that prepares students for careers in government service, international institutions and non-governmental organizations. Hallmarks of the program include its diverse faculty, small class size, open exchange of ideas and a global student body.

Overview

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.
