The Divison of Global Affairs (DGA) offers a Master of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy in Global Affairs. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of globalization and its implications for our world.
How You Will Learn
Cutting across academic fields, the Division of Global Affairs (DGA) brings together faculty from School of Arts and Sciences-Newark (political science, history, sociology, economics, anthropology and others), the School of Law, the Business School, the School of Criminal Justice, and the School of Public Affairs and Administration. Students will take a range of foundational courses in global studies as well as more specialized electives reflecting their particular interests.
The Master’s degree (M.S.) prepares students to work in the public and private international sectors, as well as in non-governmental organizations (NGOs), foundations, and media companies focusing on global issues.
The Doctoral degree (Ph.D.) is geared towards preparing future scholars eager to adopt and cultivate a planetary perspective on global issues from an interdisciplinary and multicultural standpoint. The Ph.D. in Global Affairs can also be an excellent track for global policy jobs requiring advanced expertise and research training.
Any questions about these programs should be addressed to the Director of DGA, Prof. Gary D. Farney (firstname.lastname@example.org).
