M.A. International Studies
Students in the Master of Arts program in International Studies may pursue a general program or a concentration in European Studies or Latin American Studies. Students in the general program are expected to develop individualized concentrations, such as development studies, human rights, or a traditional academic discipline.
The master’s degree program is available in two plans: Plan A requires a minimum of 21 credits of course work plus a thesis; Plan B requires 30 credits of course work plus a Plan B paper. Course work must be distributed over three academic disciplines. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency in a second language adequate both for conversation and research.

The Office of Global Programs and the area studies programs sponsor an array of co-curricular events and outreach activities. The Thomas J. Dodd Research Center houses major archival and special research collections, notably the Nürnberg Trials archive, the papers of the African National Congress and the Hispanic Culture and History Collection. The Latin American Survey Data Bank, in the Roper Center for Public Opinion and Research, offers historical and current national-level surveys from throughout the region.
