Student speaking in GMAP Classroom

GMAP Students at a Fletcher Residency

GMAP applicants are highly motivated mid–to–senior level professionals interested in pursuing a Master of Arts degree in international affairs without interrupting their professional careers.  Over a one-year period, GMAP combines three intensive two-week residency sessions with 33 weeks of flexible Internet-mediated instruction.

We review applications and offer admissions decisions on a rolling basis for the main March and July intakes each year. There is also an option to join us as a midyear student beginning in August and January at our international locations.  

The Admissions Committee, which comprises Fletcher administration and faculty, meets regularly to review applications and make admissions decisions. Applicants who apply before the 1st day of each month will be notified of the decision by the end of the month. For example, applicants who submit an application before May 1st will have their applications considered and be notified of the decision at the end of May. Applying as early as possible increases an applicant's chances of getting into the class sessions of his or her choice.

The next possible start dates include:

  • Joining the March Class of 2014-15 as a midyear student, beginning with a residency in Tallinn, Estonia from August 17-29, 2014.
  • Joining the July Class of 2014-15 as a midyear student, beginning with a residency in Buenos Aires, Argentina from January 4-16, 2015.
  • The March Class of 2015-16, beginning with a residency at The Fletcher School from March 23 - April 3, 2015. All applications for this class should reach GMAP by January 31, 2015.
The successful GMAP candidate should possess the following:
  • Minimum of eight years professional experience
  • Bachelor’s degree
  • General proficiency in a second language
  • Desire and ability to engage in a multi-disciplinary international affairs curriculum

US Department of Defense-sponsored applicants to GMAP should apply directly through the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).
