25 Masters Programs in International Studies

Students who wish to further their education after they receive their undergraduate degree often pursue a master’s degree. A master’s degree program delves deeper into the student’s chosen field, often requiring an already enhanced knowledge of the subject.

What is a Master in International Studies? The world is shrinking, and with that comes a demand for professionals who understand how to run a business or navigate politics on a global scale. International studies students can learn the intricacies of socio-political cultures from all over the world, as well as how to negotiate within those cultures. They then have the chance to apply those skills in a position that could affect the very way the world operates. Coursework typically focuses on global affairs and foreign practices.

International studies graduates join the workforce with strong analytical skills and management prowess. They often know how to work with professionals from all corners of the world and can successfully close business deals or affect policy in different geographic regions.

The time it takes to complete a master’s degree depends largely on whether the student is going full-time or part-time. Tuition can also fluctuate, depending on whether the school is private or public and other factors. Prospective students should compare schools.

International studies graduates can pursue many careers. International banking is a viable field for business-minded students, where they may become bankers or financial consultants. Research programs also seek international studies graduates to fill researcher roles. Both governments and global nonprofits are other professional avenues graduates can pursue as well. They can become diplomats or ambassadors, if they choose, or they can serve nonprofits as program coordinators.

Students interested in a Master in International Studies can find professional programs from around the world specializing in this educational field. Many programs are also available online.
