The Pennsylvania State University School of International Affairs is highly interdisciplinary and draws extensively upon the intellectual resources of faculty in several academic colleges of the University. The master's in international affairs degree offers a solid academic grounding in the institutions, traditions, and mechanisms of international exchange; targeted study of the critical analytical tools used in multidimensional problem solving; exposure to the most prominent theories of sociocultural interchange; and the professional skills necessary to begin working in the international milieu at any level and in any field. The program is designed as a modern and cosmopolitan community of students, faculty, scholars, and researchers, sharing the common goals of enhancing international understanding, knowledge, and discourse, as well as serving the public interest. Its mission is to prepare exceptional students for careers and leadership positions in both the private and public sectors of an increasingly interdependent world.
