Virtual Open House

Service and social justice sit at the core of SIS’ mission. Across all SIS degree programs, students are united in their common goal of making a positive impact on the larger communities around them. Wherever you are in the world this fall, join the SIS Virtual Open Houses to learn about our 18+ graduate programs that prepare you for a career in international affairs. Each Open House provides a first-hand opportunity to engage with our academic community, understand the admissions process, and explore the career resources and interdisciplinary curriculum that define a top-ten professional school of international affairs.

Open Houses are held on Zoom, and run approximately two hours.

Program Follow-up Sessions

Program follow-up sessions are available after each Open House if 1) you did not have a chance to explore a second program of interest during the open house, or 2) you have follow-up questions that you’d like to ask of your primary program of interest. Participation in the Open House prior to this session is strongly recommended in order to get a holistic sense of all resources and support available to you during your SIS graduate education.
