Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs

The EPGA Program

American University’s MA in Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs (EPGA) offers an ethical response to some of the world’s most pressing problems. Founded as part of an effort to deepen the ethical context for international studies, the purpose of this interdisciplinary program is to prepare students broadly in the practical application of ethical theory and policy analysis to complex issues in global affairs. The EPGA program is jointly administered by the Department of Philosophy and Religion in the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School for International Service, so students have access to two tremendous faculties to help them synthesize their knowledge of international affairs and ethics.
