If you're in the DC area, we hope you'll come visit us on campus for an Open House or information session. During the academic year, we also offer class visits and opportunities to meet current students and faculty in your program of interest.

New online, on-campus, and regional events are added through the year, so be sure to complete our information request form to receive important updates.

Special Fall 2014 Events

Every year, between September and November, SIS Graduate Admissions representatives are joined by deans, program faculty, staff, advisors and alumni for special outreach events online, in D.C., and all around the world.

Open Houses are a unique opportunity to hear about our faculty and students' incredible intellectual and professional contributions to the international affairs community, learn about our graduate degrees and admissions process, hear from academic, career, and study abroad advisors, and networks with others who share a passion for becoming leaders in the field. Open Houses begin at 6:00pm.
