The Program in International Relations at New York University welcomes US military Foreign Area Officers into the graduate program. The MA in International Relations helps to prepare commissioned officers with a unique combination of strategic focus, regional expertise, foreign language proficiency, and professional military skills and experience.
The IR Program works with FAO students to devise a course of study that prepares them to become ‘Soldier-Statesmen’ with a skill set that includes the ability to provide senior policy makers on international political-military operations; the production of cultural, regional and interagency expertise; and the ability to build and strengthen diplomatic and cooperative relationships with foreign policy-makers.
The IR Program and the Graduate School of Arts and Science at NYU work with FAO candidates to provide a funding package to facilitate their academic studies at the university. For more information on the FAO program please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FAO program is open only to serving US military officers selected by their service for further study.
