Dear Visitor:

Welcome! Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is one of the few universities to offer the first fully developed UN studies program. Rutgers’ commitment to international education is embodied in its motto, “New Jersey roots, global reach.” Our M.A. Program in Political Science - United Nations and Global Policy Studies (UNMA) provides excellent preparation for those seeking to pursue careers in international affairs, whether through the Foreign Service, Peace Corps, the United Nations, international Non-Governmental Organizations, domestic NGOs, and the Academy. Areas of involvement include human rights, social and economic development, disarmament, conflict analysis, sustainable development, peacemaking and socially responsible investment. Taught by a world class faculty, the program's curriculum offers our students cutting edge theoretical and conceptual understanding of the challenges facing the world, as well as provide them with the skills necessary to address these challenges. We are collaborating with representatives of the UN organization and UN member states, civil society and philanthropic organizations, the private sector and other universities - in the US and abroad.

I invite you to explore our website and contact us to discuss how our program fits your academic and career aspirations.

Sincerely,

Eric Davis, PhD
