"Studying in the Global Affairs program helped me to develop professional skills I use in the field, and gave me the opportunity to network with a great cohort of fellow students and knowledgeable and caring professors. Being a speaker in an international conference, the internship experience in D.C., the capstone project with the U.S. State Department, and the support of a wonderful staff made the graduate school experience unique."

Its interdisciplinary curriculum served as a catalyst for understanding the dynamics that shape our national security and the strategic approach needed to tackle them. Its integrated career services ensure student success out in the real world.
