Study Abroad. Because of our commitment to create unique opportunities to engage people and cultures worldwide, you'll have the opportunity to travel globally to see international relations first-hand. Our program allows you to choose from three concentrations: International Business, International Education, and International Development, and in Africa, Global Public Health. Based on your chosen area of emphasis, you will be able to select the type of internship that will match your professional goals.
Personal interaction with faculty. Our faculty and staff come from diverse backgrounds and fields. What they all share is real-world experience, extraordinary expertise, a faith-based perspective, and a commitment to your success. When it comes time to write your thesis, you will work one-on-one with a faculty thesis advisor who will provide oversight, counsel, and collaboration in this culminating project of your MAIS experience.
Year-long, full immersion program. The MA in International Studies is an accelerated graduate degree program that will cultivate your academic, cultural, research, and language skills through practical, lived experience in China or Africa.
