Program Description:

The Global & Area Studies Program at the University of Wyoming offers students the opportunity to obtain a Master's Degree that is tailored to a student's interests in global issues. As a small-scale, interdisciplinary program, international studies allows students to work closely with faculty members from diverse backgrounds and areas of study: globalization, environmental policy, national security issues, NGO administration, among many others. Students may also gain experience through teaching and internship activities.

 

International studies offers a Traditional Master's Degree that combines coursework and a thesis project. The Masters International Peace Corps Degree is an alternative to the traditional degree and combines coursework, two journal-length papers, including an applied research project, and Peace Corps service. Both degrees offer the option of a concurrent major in Environment and Natural Resources which allows students to learn and practice innovative approaches to natural resource management issues from a global perspective.
