NPSIA students receive comprehensive, interdisciplinary, high-quality instruction and training in their chosen specialization of international affairs.  Our programs develop a strong foundation in policy formulation, policy research methods, and economics. We focus on practical knowledge and skill development that complement theoretical instruction through the regular use of research assignments, case studies and simulations, mediation exercises, the preparation of  policy papers, and project evaluation activities. Recognizing that the ability to communicate is essential to international affairs, all students must be able to function in a second major international language by the completion of their degree.
