Study Abroad

Go GLOBAL!
Travel abroad with the School of Policy, Government, and International Affairs
Study abroad classes enhance participants’ graduate education with intensive, condensed three-credit courses in interesting countries that offer a comparative political experience. Participants learn from a host of guest lectures. The highlight of every course abroad is the opportunity to network with political leaders, business executives, academics, practitioners, and other trip participants.

Led by distinguished faculty members, the three-credit study abroad classes are open to all SPGIA master’s degree students, as well as non-degree/non-George Mason students.

Classes are typically conducted during recesses in the academic year, and built on subjects such as policymaking, international trade, regional development, culture, and security. Previous programs have been held in India, China, Turkey, Singapore/Thailand, Mexico, England, South Africa, Europe, and Costa Rica, among other locations.

Students may generally take only one of these courses for credit toward graduation, but in exceptional circumstances may take a second class, with the approval of Dr. Thys van Schaik, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

For more information, contact Michal McElwain Malur, Director of External Programs.
