Why Rutgers?

In-depth focus on the UN and Global Policy Studies

  • Our program offers a greater focus on the UN and the larger global public policy debates than any other New York City area MA program.
  • Our large cohort of prominent faculty will offer courses of the highest quality and standards.
  • Our program facilitates research that links course offerings to research on UN Millennium Goals, policies and policy implementation.
  • Our program partners with the UN University, UNITAR and other relevant agencies to organize workshops and conferences on cutting-edge UN issues as well as advanced analysis of global public policy issues.

Unites academics and practitioners

The program’s research activities will further integrate the program’s two foci: theory and method, and policy applications. The integration of theoretical and conceptual concerns with policy analysis makes our curriculum highly attractive to UN personnel, recent undergraduates, and other career professionals.

Unparalleled student support services

Students will have full access to the Rutgers University libraries and databases, as well as Marymount Manhattan College and may access books and articles directly or through Internet access. Books can be sent to students’ home addresses. Dr. Thomas Glynn, Political Science and History Bibliographer, will serve as program Librarian and provide research and bibliographic services.
