UGA’s Master of International Policy (MIP) is SPIA’s professional graduate program offering concentrations in nonproliferation, human security, and energy security.  The program is dedicated to preparing a select group of thoughtful students for careers across a range of US government agencies, international organizations, nonprofits, think tanks, and consultancies.  The MIP’s distinct applied, policy-oriented approach combines instruction from leading international relations scholars and security experts and is enhanced by interaction with government and industry leaders and a variety of experiential opportunities.  Applicants admitted to the MIP program join a community of loyal alumni, current and former policy practitioners, and faculty and staff dedicated to the professional development of future security-policy leaders.


The MIP is administered jointly by SPIA’s Center International Trade and Security (CITS) and Department of International Affairs.  MIP students are strongly encouraged to participate in events offered by the Center for International Trade and Security (CITS).  To keep up with CITS events, follow CITS on social media:  Twitter  Facebook  Instagram
