SFU’s MA in International Studies (MAIS) draws graduate students from across Canada and around the world who are seeking an experience that combines academic rigor with a more personalized approach to education. The School for International Studies makes this possible by offering small size classes in core courses to ensure that all students graduate with the knowledge and analytic skills needed to work successfully in an increasingly globalized world. In addition, students are able to choose elective courses on topics and/or regions of personal interest and to design their graduating project as either a thesis based on primary research or two analytical essays. This combination ensures that our students enjoy the experience of the MA program and are also well prepared for the career opportunities that lie ahead.
