Rutgers University in Newark is the only institution in the United States to offer both Master of Science and Doctoral degrees in Global Affairs. The main goal of the graduate Division of Global Affairs (DGA) is to provide intellectual and practical training in core areas, particularly in the fields of security, ethics, development and the environment. The program offers its ethnically and internationally diverse student population an interdisciplinary and multicultural perspective on global issues.
Cutting across academic fields, DGA brings together faculty from Arts and Sciences (political science, history, sociology, economics, anthropology and others), the School of Law (international law, international organizations, human rights law, comparative jurisprudence), the Business School (global political economy, international business and others), the School of Criminal Justice, the School of Nursing (in particular global health) and the School of Public Affairs and Administration. The program draws on the expertise of both academics and practitioners with a curriculum built around four concentrations: Global Governance, Global Business and Economics, Conflict and Human Rights, and Human and Environmental Security.
