Design Your Education

In the Master of International Service program, students can choose courses from SIS' many concentrations to fulfill their elective requirements in a way that supplements their professional experiences and helps them advance in their career. The program builds on students' preexisting knowledge and experience to focus on new expertise and skills that are directly relevant to professionals in the field of international affairs.


In this way, MIS offers extraordinary flexibility to professionals and advanced graduate students in the fields of international affairs. While the program provides a skills-focused curriculum that communicates rigorous academic education in theory, methods, and economics, it also allows students to design their own substantive specialties, hone in on specific skills and knowledge, and complement theoretical knowledge with practical experiences directly relevant to students’ professional lives.
