UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy - Information Session

The UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) addresses the crucial societal challenges of the 21st century. The school’s pioneering research builds on internationally recognized expertise of the Americas and Asia, integrates analysis of public policy and markets, and explores global issues of conflict and cooperation. Leveraging our West Coast location and UC San Diego’s renowned programs in science and technology, GPS develops new analytic tools with real-world applications, while rigorously training the next generation of global leaders. 

We offer two-year Master of International Affairs, Master of Public Policy and Master of Chinese Economic and Political Affairs degrees; other academic opportunities include an executive Master of Advanced Studies in International Affairs, designed for working professionals, and the opportunity for further postgraduate study in conjunction with the UC San Diego Department of Political Science. Several five-year concurrent degree programs are offered and are only open to current undergraduate students. 

The core curriculum combines three professional school traditions: international relations, public policy and management. Our outstanding internship and career services programs create unique opportunities around the world for our students, and graduates assume senior policy positions in the public and nonprofit sectors, as well as in non-governmental organizations and private companies. Through collaborations across campus and counterparts around the globe, GPS shapes cutting-edge solutions for a transforming world.

We look forward to connecting with you!
