The one-year Master’s program is designed for candidates with an undergraduate degree and at least 5 years of professional experience, seeking to immerse themselves in a challenging university environment and gain further expertise or new horizons in one of the cardinal ﬁelds of international affairs. This unique accelerated program will allow students to complete a one year Master’s specialising in one of the 7 existing tracks at PSIA: • International Security • International Public Management • International Economic Policy • Development Practice • Human Rights and Humanitarian Action • Environmental Policy • International Energy Students on the Master’s in Advanced Global Studies (MAGS) will also select one of PSIA’s 24 regional and thematic concentrations. MAGS students are immersed in PSIA’s wider community of 1500 degree seeking students from over 100 countries, thus giving them access to the full breadth of the PSIA curriculum comprising over 400 individual courses a year. Students in the program are offered a series of dedicated courses and workshops designed to cover crosscutting skill-sets for early to mid-career professionals in international affairs. Students from all MAGS tracks will take these workshops, thus creating space for further intellectual and professional exchange with peers from diverse backgrounds and sectors. As part of this program, MAGS students have the rare opportunity to engage in a supervised group policy work whereby they research and formulate state of the art policy recommendations on a chosen global policy issue. The MAGS policy brief is a year long, team effort supervised by distinguished actors or academic professors. Through this exercise, students delve into the 360° process of public decision-making. Foreign language training is also one of PSIA’s pillars, and MAGS students are required to take at least one foreign language course per semester, chosen from Sciences Po’s in-house offer of 15+ languages.
