Study international relations in a global city

CIR is defined by its commitment to interdisciplinary education and research. Through their coursework and co-curricular opportunities, students are encouraged to develop fluency in the contemporary literatures of international relations as well as attain mastery in a specialization of their choosing. The master’s thesis paper, a piece of rigorous problem-driven research, is the capstone of the program. This academic preparation is complemented by routine engagement with the professional world of international relations, including speaker events through campus partners, curated career treks and symposia, and unparalleled seminar experiences abroad.
