Master of Global Affairs (MGA) is a two-year professional program, consisting of four sessions of coursework and a compulsory summer internship. The purpose of this program is to provide an outstanding professional, multidisciplinary education to train the next generation of global leaders of international institutions, global civil society, and business. The MGA will equip students with a sophisticated understanding of the larger political, economic, and social contexts of global affairs and with the skills necessary to work strategically and effectively within the evolving global system.
The MGA integrates the study of global institutions, global civil society, and the global economy and markets into the same program, and requires that students learn about each area and about the interconnections between them.
In offering a curriculum that provides both breadth and depth, the MGA draws on the scholarly strength of faculty from a range of disciplines and subject areas. Students lacking backgrounds in basic economics will be required to take courses in micro- and macroeconomics for policy analysis.
