1a. Master of Global Affairs Program, Keough School for Global Affairs, University of Notre Dame (concentrations in Sustainable Development, Peace Studies, and Global Affairs)

Colleagues, I wanted to pass along an opportunity that may be of considerable interest to some of your best and brightest undergraduate students with an interest in global affairs and/or development, particularly students for whom the financial cost of a masters program might otherwise be prohibitive.

The University of Notre Dame has created a new Keough School for Global Affairs, which is now recruiting for its Master of Global Affairs program. The masters program will offer concentrations in Peace Studies, Sustainable Development, and Global Affairs with customizable specialization.

**For the inaugural cohort, all admitted students will receive a full tuition scholarship and a living stipend.**

Courses will be taught by a multi-disciplinary group of faculty, and will include intensive practical experience, both in integration labs on campus and in field placements over the summer.


More information on the program is available on this flyer and on the website.

The application deadline is December 15, 2016.

Please feel free to circulate to any potentially interested students and share with colleagues.

Any interested students who have questions can contact Colleen Andrews, Admissions and Academic Coordinator, at keough-admissions@nd.edu.
