The Master in International Studies Program seeks to provide its students with an understanding of contemporary international society, including the forces that shape and transform it. By examining the dynamics of international society, students can better understand contemporary international problems and issues as well as the various strategies of responding to them. Students of the Program are expected to understand their own culture in a global and comparative context as well as appreciate cultural nuances and differences. Students also develop a sense of importance for conceptual paradigms that guide actions of individuals and institutions in the international arena. Students are able to develop an appreciation for academic as well as policy-oriented research in understanding international issues and problems. Students are exposed to multidisciplinary, inter-disciplinary, and comparative approaches that aim to provide a wider perspective of international society equipping them for a wide variety of careers. The Program aims to provide professional preparation for those who plan to pursue careers requiring an international affairs background such as the foreign service, international organizations, and transnational corporations.
