The Mid-Career Master of Arts in International Relations (IREL) is designed as a terminal MA program for mid-career students who wish to complete an advanced degree in order to further their careers in the field of international relations. The program is intended for students who already hold a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations (or a related discipline) and have roughly seven years or more of work experience relevant to international affairs, or who already hold a master’s degree in international affairs or a related discipline. It is an abbreviated (one-year) program that assumes that students already have a strong knowledge of the field and hence require less coursework and a less-structured program than students who do not have substantive IR-related work experience. In addition to being an excellent degree for those seeking careers in a civilian role, this program is also ideal for US Army officers who are required to complete a master’s program as part of their training in the Foreign Area Officer (FAO) program.
