The Master of Science is an internationally acknowledged academic achievement bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in a particular science-related field. Most master’s degree programs build upon the knowledge learned in a similar bachelor’s degree program.

Just what is an MSc in International Affairs? Students in these programs review a broad array of topics related to international commerce, government, health policy and global economics, among others. While some variation in curriculum from program to program is to be expected, students should expect a comprehensive overview of topics of concern to world leaders of business, banking, education and foreign service. Additional attention is frequently given to cross-cultural considerations and how they affect global commerce and diplomacy.

Graduates of Master of Science in International Affairs programs are generally prepared for a broad range of upper-level positions within the global marketplace. Master’s degree recipients often find that they have more career opportunities than those with lesser academic degrees, and they are also often able to secure higher salaries than those without degrees or those with bachelor’s degrees.

Master of Science programs vary in terms of tuition costs based on factors such as the duration of the program, the geographic region through which it is taken and the overall prestige of the degree program itself.

International affairs master’s degree holders assume an array of lucrative positions all over the world. Many go on to work as ambassadors, diplomats or Foreign Service officers, while some find work in government agencies or intelligence organizations around the globe. Others yet use the master’s degree to teach in higher education, while some graduates choose to use it as a steppingstone toward securing a doctorate.

Students interested in establishing a rewarding and profitable career in international affairs are encouraged to review the opportunities available worldwide through our broad directory.
