Graduate School Forum:
The Next Generation of International Affairs Faculty

GraduateSchoolForum

Interdisciplinarity is the hallmark of an international affairs degree and a reflection of the complexity of addressing problems with a global dimension. At their core, graduate programs in international affairs must train their students to have broad knowledge of the world and be able to navigate the interconnectedness of the private, public, and NGO sectors.

Students today will face a far more complicated world than ever as they assume leadership roles in international affairs. They simply will not have the option to shy away from studying the roles of science and technology, the global economy, or the role of governments’ policies to improve or hinder the environments in which we operate. Young people today are challenged to be more innovative—and to be quicker and more creative in doing so than any time before.
