On-Campus Master of Arts Information Session

December 6, 2019 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Come learn about our dynamic regional studies offerings within our Master of Arts program by attending this on-campus information session. The session will be moderated by a faculty member and include current students and alumni who will give their perspective on the benefits of pursuing regional studies. Admissions staff will also be on hand to address your questions about the admissions process.

The MA degree is a two-year program for full-time students and is the cornerstone of the school's experience. About half of all entering MA students spend a year at SAIS Europe and a year in Washington, DC, and half spend both years in Washington. The academic program is the same for both groups and consists of interdisciplinary course work in international relations, economics and languages. Individuals proficient in Mandarin may pursue the HNC Certificate and MA by completing two semesters in Nanjing to receive a certificate in Chinese and American Studies, combined with two or three semesters in the MA program. One of these three semesters must be at the Washington campus.

RSVP for this event here.
