A one-year Master to fast-track your career in International Affairs
This one-year master's program is designed for candidates with an undergraduate degree and 5 years of professional experience, seeking to immerse themselves in a challenging university environment and gain further expertise or new horizons in one of the cardinal fields of international affairs. PSIA has 5 years of successful experience with the one-year Master in Development Practice, and is now expanding the offer to encompass all domains of expertise within the school.
The Master in Advanced Global Studies is:
7 tracks, 24 concencentrations and PSIA's offer of 450 courses
This unique accelerated program will allow students to take a full year out of their careers to specialise in one of the 7 existing tracks at PSIA:
Like all students at PSIA, students in the Master in Advanced Global Studies will also have the opportunity to specialise in a concentration program chosen from PSIA's rich offer of 24 concentrations, both regional and thematic.
Students within the Master in Advanced Global Studies will be immersed in PSIA's wider community of 1500 degree seeking students from over 105 countries, thus having access to the world's broadest curriculum with an offer of over 450 individual courses a year and taking advantage of this breadth and scope in the same way that all students at PSIA do, but graduating after only one year of study.
Students in the program will also be offered a series of dedicated courses and workshops designed to cover transversal skill-sets for early to mid-career professionals in international affairs. These workshops will span topics such as, amongst others, management and leadership, policy brief methods, public speaking and policy evaluation. Students from all tracks of the Master in Advanced Global Studies will take these workshops, thus creating space for further intellectual and professional exchange with peers from diverse backgrounds and sectors.
Foreign language training is also one of PSIA's pillars, and students in the program will be required to take at least one foreign language course per semester, chosen from Sciences Po's in-house offer of 10 languages.
The one-year Master in Advanced Global Studies is a full-time program, running from late August to the end of June, and including a January intersession. Classes are taken in the heart of Paris, at Sciences Po's main campus in the St Germain neighbourhood.
