The Graduate School of International Affairs (GSIA) was the first program in Taiwan preparing students to be part of the negotiating elite in global political and economic affairs. In 2014, GSIA transformed to the Master's Program in International Affairs, open to international students only.
Our curriculum features tailored, advanced courses focusing on global governance, global strategy and operations, and international negotiation and communication. All courses are mainly taught in English, with supplementary academic support in Chinese.
Graduating with a master’s degree in International Affairs is a great start for students who wish to achieve excellence in global governance, global business operations, international negotiation, public diplomacy, and global communication, all leading to the road of success.
