International Programs, in conjunction with the Graduate College, offers an M.A. in International Studies (ISMA). The ISMA is administered by the International Programs (IP) Graduate Affairs Committee and the faculty Director of Academic Programs.
The ISMA degree is designed to appeal to exceptional students who have identified an area of international interest and who are suited to a flexible, tailor-made program of graduate study on international issues. The program is for students who seek an interdisciplinary approach to graduate study; students with a clear disciplinary direction should apply to a standard disciplinary program. The ISMA is an academic degree, not a professional certification; however, students whose employment prospects will be increased by an academic degree in international studies are encouraged to apply.
Updated information about the ISMA degree will be posted here in the spring. Until then, if you have specific questions about the program, please contact International Programs Director of Academic Programs Sonia Ryang (email@example.com).
