Master in International Policy

The Master in International Policy (MIP) at the University of Georgia (UGA) offers advanced training for students who wish to pursue non-academic careers in a variety of arenas, including international, governmental, and non-governmental organizations; the diplomatic corps; federal agencies, such as the foreign service and the intelligence community; and foreign policy making, strategic trade, and other international policy fields. This is thus distinct from SPIA’s 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).
