Message from the Director

Welcome to the Master of International Service Program!

MIS Director Claudia Hofmann

We are delighted to provide distinguished students with the extraordinary opportunity to grow and gain expertise in the field of international affairs and international service.

The Master of International Service program equips students and professionals with knowledge and skills that are directly applicable to their professional lives through a degree program that is tailored to their needs. Our program is unique in the flexibility students have while earning a prestigious degree from one of the top 10 international affairs schools in the world. Students in our program are able to build their own concentration that assists them in reaching their professional goals, while taking full advantage of a coherent and strong graduate education. They benefit from the wealth of courses offered at the School of International Service and enroll in those courses that further their existing career or help start a new one, and that complement their personal and professional interests.

It is especially important to us to connect a rigorous academic education in theory, methods, and economics to practical experiences. Many of our teachers at the School of International Service are also practitioners with a wealth of knowledge in theory and practice that they are here to share. Moreover, the MIS program provides students with practical opportunities to apply their knowledge themselves, such as simulations, internships, practica, skills institutes, and a number of summer abroad programs.

We invite you to explore the program through the website and our social media sites, call or email us, and to visit us on campus when you get the chance.

With all best wishes,

Claudia Hofmann
Director, Master of International Service
