Master in International Policy

The Master's in International Policy (MIP) offers advanced training for students who wish to pursue non-academic careers in international, governmental and non-governmental organizations; in the diplomatic corps; in federal agencies such as the foreign service and the intelligence community; and in foreign policy making and other international policy fields. This is thus distinct from our existing M.A. and Ph.D. program (offered jointly with Political Science) that trains students for teaching and research careers at the university level. There are two tracks within the MIP program: the concentration in International Security and Nonproliferation (ISN) and the General Track (General).

Student Leader Program

The Richard B. Russell Security Leadership Program (SLP) is a year-long fellowship focused on nonproliferation and national security. The first semester is spent in an intensive research-oriented course taught by CITS staff and guest lecturers from the policymaking and national security communities. In the second semester, students work on projects ranging from country assessments to international workshops and seminars for strategic trade control practitioners.

SLP participants have gone on to positions in the US government, the UN, the International Atomic Energy Agency, large high-technology manufacturers, trade-oriented consulting firms, & academic institutions.
