Global MA in International Relations

Since 2006, the Global MA in International Relations (GMAIR) program has offered the perfect blend of academic rigor, cultural immersion, and personal adventure to students with a passion for politics and international relations. The GMAIR teaches students how to critically analyze the complexities and impact of international affairs by studying topics such as war and diplomacy, international law, U.S. foreign policy, globalization, and human rights.

The GMAIR program is 11 months and provides full-time graduate students an opportunity to live, learn, and study at five locations, which may include Webster's campuses in Leiden, the Netherlands; London, England; Geneva, Switzerland; Vienna, Austria; and either Bangkok, Thailand; or a partner in Beijing, China. Beginning in 2014, one cohort will include an eight-week term in Havana, Cuba.

These locations are part of Webster's distinctive global network of campuses spanning the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Webster's international programs are recognized for excellence by U.S. News & World Report.
