Maxwell / The School


Overseas Experience

When you enroll at the Maxwell School, Syracuse is your classroom but the world is your lab.

For graduate students, the School offers academic and practicum experiences in nearly 20 countries on five continents, in addition to the globally oriented programs on campus and at Maxwell's new Washington, D.C., headquarters. In some cases, these foreign locations provide specialized, site-specific coursework; in all cases, they are launch pads for any student's efforts to establish internships and research opportunities overseas. This is especially significant for students pursuing Maxwell's MA in International Relations degree, for whom the global internship is an integrated, required part of the program. 

Among the locations of Maxwell's educational partners are Berlin, Geneva, Istanbul, Accra, Cairo, Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, Santiago, and Herzliya (Israel). 

For undergraduates, Maxwell departments maintain close relationships with Syracuse University's SU Abroad program, which consistently ranks among the top in the country. The University operates overseas centers in Beijing, Florence, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, Madrid, Santiago (Chile), and Strasbourg (France), while maintaining other study abroad options in more than 30 additional countries.

Maxwell holds — and acts upon — a deep commitment to the importance of international study for a well-educated citizen of the 21st century.
