Based on its faculty expertise, contributions to research and many joint degree options, FIU’s master’s in international relations has been named “Best in State for 2018.”

The ranking, published by InternationalRelationsEDU.org, notes that the list includes “some of the most influential IR programs in the world.” FIU is listed among top programs such as those at Stanford, Yale, Georgetown and Columbia universities.

Of FIU’s program, the editors wrote:

“Graduates and faculty are regularly transitioning into positions of prominence in the field of international relations,’’ noting that the Green School’s former advisory board chair, Eliot Pedrosa, recently left to fill a key position with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), which supports development projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Where else in the nation can you specialize in Jain Studies?” the article continues. “And that’s not the only religious field you can delve into at FIU – Miami’s first and only public research university.

“Whether you want to focus on the cultural and religious aspects of international studies or foreign policy and security, at Green you’ll find a world-class faculty and guest speakers that will help get you there. Most recently, former UN Ambassador and Obama Administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice treated graduates of the Green School to an unforgettable commencement address.”

“Every one of these programs is exceptional in its own right and offers a learning experience that is objectively outstanding, while at the same time bringing something vitally important to the broader field of international relations,” the article continues.
