The Graduate Certificate in International Affairs provides a foundation of courses for students who want to understand and analyze the complex questions, risks, and opportunities associated with living and working in a rapidly changing global environment. Our heightened economic and political interdependence generates challenges in areas such as social justice, diversity, international security, sustainable development, resource distribution, technology, and human rights. Moreover, rising nationalism and complex ethnic and religious tensions pose ongoing challenges while they also invite strategies for compromise and cooperation.
