The MA in International Affairs: Comparative and Regional Studies (CRS) requires 39 credit hours of graduate coursework, including a capstone, that can be completed in two years (full-time) or up to six years (part-time). CRS’s broad curriculum bridges comparative analysis and regional knowledge. Whereas comparative reasoning focuses on uniformities and variations among cases, examining a specific world region grounds knowledge and provides insight. CRS offers students an innovative program of study designed to create informed and analytically-oriented global leaders through traditional academic study, methodological training, skills institutes, and policy practica. Our dual focus—with students choosing one regional and one thematic concentration—provides a two-pronged approach to the study of international affairs.
