AGS is a small, elite graduate school that combines all the qualities of a top rate university with an intimate and multicultural learning environment. AGS specializes in International Relations and Diplomacy, covering a broad range of subjects such as NGO management, conflict resolution, environmental politics, and area specializations (Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Europe), among others. The school takes full advantage of its strategic location in a large international city such as Paris by hosting guest talks, visits, and networking events. AGS's outstanding faculty is made up of scholars, former ambassadors and other practitioners drawn from the diverse Paris community. More than 60 nationalities have been represented within the AGS faculty and student body over the past twenty-five years, bringing multiple perspectives into the classroom and fostering a dialogue and understanding that are at the heart of the school’s mission: peace through education.
