The International and Global Affairs (IGA) concentration trains the next generation of policymakers and leaders like you to tackle the complex issues of a globalizing world.

As an IGA concentrator, you add a layer of depth to your master's degree through further intensive coursework taught by Harvard Kennedy School faculty members who are among the world’s leading scholars of global affairs.

The concentration provides training for you to become a globally minded policymaker serving in a national, regional, or local government agency; international or nongovernmental organization; or multinational corporation. Many concentrators translate their IGA training into careers in international security, human rights, energy security, environment and resource systems, or information systems—all of which address international and global challenges and governance.

There are a number of centers and programs at HKS that focus on topics and issues central to the IGA concentration and possibly your area of academic interest.
