UGA’s Master of International Policy (MIP) is an applied graduate program 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 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 professional network of loyal alumni, current and former policy practitioners, and faculty and staff dedicated to the professional development of future security-policy leaders.


“Although I was accepted into a prestigious international affairs program in Washington D.C., I was attracted to the MIP program due to its size. Being a member of a small cohort has allowed me to build strong relationships with my classmates and professors. Likewise, this small size allows participants the opportunity for networking and developing professional  relationships on a more intimate level. This program strives to make sure every student achieves success, and I feel extremely confident that I made the right choice for myself and my future.” – Brooklyn T.
