Program description

MA students

In our complex world, where challenges to peace are multiplying, there is a crucial need for analytical thinkers able to address transnational issues in a creative and constructive fashion. Our programs offer a dynamic balance between rigorous intellectual preparation in the social sciences and hands-on professional training with international experts. Our graduates work at the community, national and international levels, contributing to the development of new ideas and strategies to provide peace and social justice to citizens across the globe.

What you'll get:

  • The opportunity to earn an American master’s degree in France
  • A mix of practical and theoretical knowledge of international affairs, conflict resolution, and civil society development
  • A global network to launch a career in the NGO sector or with an international institution, national government, or multinational corporation

The cultural diversity of AUP's student body is the perfect community in which to study international affairs. Students in the program come from educational institutions across the world, having earned the equivalent of a BA degree in international affairs or a closely related field—and from the working worlds of international institutions, NGOs, and policymaking.

AUP offers the option to follow either a 1-year full-time or 2-year part-time course of study. Students in the one-year program immerse themselves fully in their studies and finish the program faster. The two-year program allows Paris-based professionals the chance to invest in their futures while keeping their jobs. Both programs offer the same rigorous curriculum with students achieving the same rewarding learning goals.

The Master of Arts in International Affairs (MIN) prepares students for effective future roles in the complex global climate of the 21st century. We offer the option to follow either a one-year full-time or two-year part-time course of study.

Our dual-language, dual-degree Master of Arts in International Affairs, Conflict Resolution, and Civil Society Development, a joint program between AUP and the Sorbonne-Paris I, is a dynamic graduate program drawing on the rich resources of two prestigious educational institutions.
