Located in the heart of Washington DC, its mission is to educate the next generation of international leaders, conduct research that advances understanding of important global issues, and engage the policy community in the United States and around the world.

Each year, approximately 325 students enter our eight two-year master’s degree programs on international affairs, international development, international trade and investment policy, international science and technology policy, global communication, and security policy studies and regional programs focusing on Asia and the Middle East.
