Peace Studies

The new Keough School of Global Affairs offers a two-year professional Master of Global Affairs (M.G.A.) degree to prepare students to become highly skilled, effective, and ethical leaders in governments; nongovernmental organizations; and the private sector.

Students choose a program of study in which they acquire deep knowledge and strengthen analytical and practical skills in Global Affairs, International Peace Studies, or Sustainable Development.

All students engage in Integration Labs, in which they develop sustained partnerships with leading global organizations, practitioners, and policymakers, and spend several months working in the field to develop integrated solutions for global challenges.
