Graduate Academic Programs

Preparing world leaders of tomorrow

Our graduate programs combine rigorous coursework and professional training to provide students the knowledge and perspectives needed to make a difference in the world. Through our programs, students gain expertise in world regions and important contemporary issues — ranging from war to rising levels of resource consumption to the expansion of the global economy to mounting environmental challenges — that will shape the world in decades ahead.

As a result, the Elliott School prepares graduate students each year for meaningful international affairs careers.
