Welcome, Master of Global Affairs Class of 2019!

Author: Kristi Flaherty

The Keough School’s inaugural master of global affairs class includes 38 students from 22 countries: Afghanistan, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Egypt, Iran, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tajikistan, Ukraine, the United States, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.


While engaged with a core curriculum that emphasizes integral human development, the academic cornerstone of the Keough School, students choose to concentrate in international peace studies, international development, or global affairs.


The international peace studies concentration in the master of global affairs builds sustainable peace and justice through careers in policy analysis and political change, government and organizational leadership, and conflict analysis and transformation. The new cohort of students join a global network of more than 500 master’s graduates addressing violent conflict and peace, human rights and human development, environmental sustainability, and related issues.
