Applications to the Joint MA Program in International Relations and Journalism and the Dual MAIR-MPA Program are accepted for the Fall semester only.
Applications to the MA program in International Relations are accepted for the Fall and Spring semesters.
Each year the Program in International Relations receives many more applications for our MA-degree program than available seats. As such, applicants are highly encouraged to apply by the Graduate School's priority deadline of March 1st for Fall admissions and November 1st for Spring admissions. IR at NYU is a small program—focused on our students with the goal of producing quality graduates, rather than quantity. Therefore, we keep the number of students we take quite low to ensure the level of quality and personal attention that defines the MA in IR at New York University.
