GMAP is a one-year graduate degree program leading to a master of arts in international relations.
GMAP teaches students to explore the complex and nuanced intersections among the worlds of international business, international organizations and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and governments. Participants include a wide variety of international affairs professionals from all regions of the world with diverse interests and professional backgrounds.
GMAP students have the option to start their academic year in August or January. The GMAP year is comprised of three terms, and each term includes a two-week residency session and 11 weeks of internet-mediated instruction. Two residencies are held at The Fletcher School, and one residency is held at an international location. During the 12-month program, students complete 11 courses and a master's capstone project. GMAP provides the signature Fletcher experience, with the added flexibility of pursuing the degree without career interruption or relocation.
