Choosing to pursue a graduate degree is a serious commitment of your time, energy and money. Education is an investment in your future, and it is an investment that can never be taken away from you. That said, the costs associated with graduate studies are significant and you should be clear about how an investment in your graduate education will impact your personal and professional journey.
The IR Program at NYU is designed as a two-year program. However, the Program can be completed in 18 months. Because our degree is points based (all students must complete 40 points to earn the MA in International Relations) the total tuition fees are the same, however, you will save significant funds related to housing and living expenses in your complete the MA in 18 months as opposed to two years.
We also encourage you to look at the Graduate School of Arts and Science’s ‘Tuition Incentive Program’. The Tuition Incentive Program offers matching scholarships to students that earn external scholarship funds. Please visit our ‘funding’ page for links to external organizations that provide scholarships to graduate students.
Finally, although the IR Program does not offer scholarships to incoming students, we do offering a limited number of ‘Final Semester Scholarships’ that offer four-points of tuition funding for students in the IR Program that have excelled academically in the Program. This is a highly competitive program, but we encourage students to apply. The Program will contact all enrolled students in the second semester of their first semester who are eligible to apply.
