Curriculum

The M.A. in Political Science - United Nations and Global Policy Studies is a 36 credit (12 courses) program designed to meet the flexibility required in light of the professional commitments many of our students have.

All students enrolled in M.A. Program in United Nations and Global Policy Studies are required to take the following Core Courses:

  • 790:525 Introduction to the United Nations: Theory, Institutions, Policy and Processes
  • 790:518 Theory and Method in the Study of Global Affairs
  • 790:546 Capstone Seminar in United Nations and Global Policy Studies

Concentrations

In addition to core courses, the UNMA curriculum is organized around five areas of concentration that are meant to offer a specialization which a student can present to an prospective employer. Concentrations, however, are not meant to constrain the choice of courses that are of interest to UNMA students. If students are planing to take any courses outside of the UNMA Program they need to get an approval from the Executive Director of the UNMA Program.
