The School’s programs focus on understanding the global context of advances in science and technology and on preparing students to address pressing concerns at the nexus of science, technology, and policy. Our alumni are making a difference in the fields of international business, domestic and foreign policy analysis, law, international security, foreign diplomacy, communications, human rights advocacy, education, and city, state, and federal government.

The School offers B.S. and professional M.S. degrees, as well as a minor in International Affairs and certificate programs in Asian Affairs, European Affairs, European Union studies, and Latin American Affairs. Undergraduate and graduate students may also participate in School-sponsored summer programs in Belgium, China, Argentina, Cuba, and Costa Rica.
