MAIA International Communication Specialization

The two-year MA in International Affairs (MAIA) with a Specialization in International Communication trains students for careers in an international setting working in journalism, marketing, public relations, and other media fields.

Rigorous core classes train students in the fundamentals of international relations scholarship, quantitative research methods, the workings of the global economy, and the practice of diplomacy and negotiation. Classes at BU’s College of Communications furnish students with concrete career skills in the media field. IR coursework complements this by enabling students to develop regional or thematic expertise. Students have the opportunity to study and intern in either London and/or Geneva.

Most classes are taught once per year, but some, particularly those outside the Pardee School, may be taught less frequently.
