Elliott School of International Affairs

The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs is one of the world’s leading schools of international affairs.

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 ten 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, Europe and Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The Elliott School also offers a one-year master’s degree program for mid-career professionals and a one-year, dual-degree Master in International Studies program for students from the Elliott School’s 15 partner universities overseas. In addition, we offer joint degree programs with GW’s schools of business, law and public health, and graduate concentrations in those same fields as well as in international education.
