The Graduate School of Public and International Affairs offers both a master's degree (MPIA) and a PhD with a focus on public and international affairs. Master's students choose one of three concentrations: Security and Intelligence Studies, Human Security, or International Political Economy. All provide the skills necessary for a career in the government, nonprofit, or private sector, focusing on international relations, national security, international economics, diplomacy, human rights, cybersecurity, and other globally oriented fields.
