MA in International Relations and MS in Public Relations

For careers in public advocacy for government and large international organizations 

Syracuse University prepares students for the field of public diplomacy through the dual-degree program of an MA in international relations, earned at the Maxwell School, and an MS in public relations from the esteemed Newhouse School of Public Communications, which together prepare students for communications and advocacy work in an international setting.

The program requires only two years to complete. All students enter the program in July and spend their first full year on campus. MSPR/MAIR students are able to go abroad over the summer semester after this initial year. We have an extensive array of Global Program options. Additionally, the final spring term is spent at our Maxwell-in-Washington program. This semester includes internships and policy-oriented seminars specific to the MSPR/MAIR program.

More details about this program are available on the MAIR/MSPR Overview page.  Also see Time to Complete.
