About NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs
The NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs facilitates change by educating and inspiring our community members to become global citizens who are capable of identifying and implementing solutions to pressing global challenges. We believe that the development of solutions to global problems must be informed by an understanding that the world’s challenges are not merely challenges for and among states and traditional diplomatic outlets, but also challenges for nonstate actors, urban and rural communities, and regional organizations.
Through our rigorous M.S. in Global Affairs graduate program, Career Advancement courses and Diplomas, and through public events, we prepare global citizens who are at home in all of these environments—and thus are effective agents of change.
