MAIA Security Studies Specialization

The two-year MA in International Affairs (MAIA) with a Specialization in Security Studies prepares students for a variety of careers within the security and intelligence 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. Electives enable students to gain in-depth understanding of the issues most important to them.

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