Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy in Paris, France

The U.S.-accredited Master of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy at the American Graduate School in Paris provides students with the knowledge, skills, and contacts to pursue a career in a large range of branches of international affairs, including intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, government, diplomacy, international business, journalism, and academia. It is a two-year program, and can also be undertaken part-time or on an 18-month accelerated track.

Courses are taught entirely in English, in Paris, France; no knowledge of French language is required to enroll. As an option, students may spend one semester in the United States.

A unique aspect of this international affairs program is its international character. The French setting of the school, the American educational process, and the multicultural classroom environment at AGS all combine to enhance the international experience of students. Furthermore, as a host to the headquarters of many intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, and international corporations, Paris offers a perfect stage to study international relations.
