Graduate Group in International Studies

The Graduate Group in International Studies oversees the academic program for the MA in International Studies and awards the MA degree. It is a multidisciplinary group of standing faculty whose fundamental responsibility is for the academic quality and effectiveness of the program. Members of the Graduate Group oversee all changes in the Lauder curriculum, teach the core Area History courses and a variety of International Studies electives, evaluate all new Lauder courses, and frequently serve as supervisors of Global Knowledge Lab research projects for students.
