Online Master of Arts in International Relations and Conflict Resolution

The Master of Arts in International Relations and Conflict Resolution emphasizes professional analysis and solutions used to defuse armed and potential conflicts existing in the world today. The advanced curriculum is specifically designed to elevate student research, knowledge, and discourse in this fascinating field. Courses are facilitated entirely online, enabling time-strapped professionals the ability to earn a career-relevant master’s degree while balancing current responsibilities.

This interdisciplinary program examines classical and alternative international relations theories and the changing role of the state in the context of globalization, regionalism, and security—including the impact of non-state actors and competing political interests. Students analyze classical and alternative theories of international relations, the history and evolution of the discipline, and key debates on world order, diplomacy, and international law. They explore the changing role of state, non-state actors, and the transnational flow of goods, finance, ideas, communications, images, crime, and terrorism that operate in a connected global environment.

The program offers the insights and experiences of the many professors holding leadership positions in the U.S. intelligence, homeland security, and foreign relations communities. Students also connect online with the University’s extensive community of scholars and dedicated professionals.
