"The focus on international study and hands-on experience is downright enduring--no course or lecture event passes without that indelible question, want to know more? And there's every opportunity to do so. There's a summer program, a semester abroad, a sister school. Land an internship, co-author a paper. At the very least, know that you are not confined to some windowless classroom bunker, nor are you tethered to an uncomfortable plastic chair here. CIS will kick it out from under you."
-Kayli Nelson, Masters of Arts in International and Area Studies Graduate 2014
The Master of Arts in Global Affairs (MAGA) enables students to pursue studies with a focus on the political, economic and social interactions that have an impact on global turbulence.
MAGA coursework is designed to provide students with a global vision from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Additionally, students will develop expertise in one or more geographic areas of the globe. The program will provide valuable and practical experience through a planned policy exercise and collective study abroad program exclusive to MAGA students.
