Syracuse University

The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs

Syracuse University’s Maxwell School is the only major school of public affairs integrating its applied professional degree programs with social science scholarship in such fields as political science, economics, geography, and sociology. As a result, Maxwell’s MA in International Relations possesses a uniquely rich combination of interdisciplinary perspectives and practical leadership/management skills. The 18-month program also emphasizes — in fact, requires — one or more global internships, adding a strong collaborative and experiential component. Together, these attributes give Maxwell’s MAIR graduates an edge in the global job market.

While theoretical work draws from across Maxwell’s disciplines, MAIR skills instruction benefits from the faculty and curriculum of Maxwell’s highly respected Master of Public Administration program. (Both the MAIR and MPA are based in the Department of Public Administration and International Affairs.) Maxwell’s MPA is concentrated, intensive, and chiefly focused on the transferable skills of public management and policy analysis, delivering fundamental skills — suitable for jobs in public, nonprofit, and related private sectors; and versatile enough to serve an entire career.

Many students enroll in the Joint MPA/IR degree, which efficiently coordinates the best of both programs. This potent degree may be earned in two years.
