The Global Governance, Politics, and Security Master's Degree Program (GGPS) at American University's School of International Service (SIS) provides students with the specialized training and widely-desirable skills necessary to launch careers in international affairs and public service. Our master's program takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding relations among and beyond states and societies on the global stage. Our mission is to produce international affairs professionals with an understanding of global history, political dynamics, and economic systems, as well as the methodological tools and the practical skills needed to make sense of data and turn rigorous analysis into innovative policies and programs in the fields of global governance and global security. We believe that GGPS master's students are defined by both their breadth and depth of knowledge and their professional training. These qualities equip them to thrive in global governance and global security where complex problems will require practical solutions grounded in an understanding of global history and political and economic systems.
