Fostering the next generation of international relations professionals, this fall Foreign Affairs magazine has partnered with the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) to highlight graduate educational opportunities through live events and specialized content.

“In an increasingly complex and disorienting geopolitical environment, it’s essential to encourage careers in international affairs and help students develop the skills needed to address tomorrow’s challenges,” said Foreign Affairs Editor Gideon Rose. “We’re thrilled to join with APSIA in helping talented young professionals navigate the institutions and programs available to them.”

On September 12, Foreign Affairs hosts its annual Graduate School Fair, produced with APSIA, gathering undergraduate students and mid-career professionals at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in New York. Foreign Affairs Deputy Managing Editor Justin Vogt moderates a conversation with CFR Senior Fellows Elliott Abrams and Stewart Patrick and Hoover Institution Research Fellow Kori Schake to assess U.S. foreign policy in the Trump administration and its effect on the international order. Following the panel, the fair features 27 leading institutions showcasing the full range of educational opportunities.

In the September/October issue of the magazine, Foreign Affairs features its annual Graduate School Forum. Produced with APSIA and focused on “Keeping Ahead in Uncertain Times,” the supplement highlights 30 colleges and universities. The online companion includes an additional six schools and encompasses videos, interviews with administrators and faculty, and social media feeds—offering a comprehensive resource for the top programs in international affairs and public policy.

“In uncertain times, we wonder: Do our assumptions about the world still apply? Can we separate facts from opinions? How can the institutions we created adapt to new situations?” writes APSIA Executive Director Carmen Iezzi Mezzera in the introduction to the supplement. “Training in international affairs and policy builds a critical foundation of expertise—regional, cultural, economic, political—to recognize the underlying forces at work in the world.”
