Academics and Graduate Programs
All of Fletcher's academic programs incorporate elements from across our three course divisions: International Law and Organizations; Diplomacy, History, and Politics; and Economics and International Business. We look to facilitate an open, supportive learning environment that promotes an authentic exchange of ideas, and generates creative solutions to seemingly intractable challenges.
This unique, interdisciplinary approach ensures that every student, regardless of program, gains both a breadth of knowledge in international affairs and the professional skills required to tackle some of the world's most challenging problems. By selecting or self-designing concentrations from 25 existing fields of study, you'll supplement broad-based foundational knowledge in international affairs with deep and specialized expertise within your chosen area of study.
The result: academic programs that propel our graduates into leadership roles across the private, public, and non-profit sectors – both domestically and around the world.
