Political Science & Public Administration– Graduate
Change a degree-major of an existing program
Master of Arts – International Affairs Major
Summary of the Changes:
We are proposing changes to the program to add more elective courses relevant to the degree. This is to broaden the opportunities for students. It also increases the inter- disciplinarily of the degree. These courses include: ECO 6060 Economic Analysis (Department of Economics and Geography); CJE 5121 Homeland Security and Criminal Justice (Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice); EUH 6935 Readings in European History II, LAH 6935 Readings in Latin American History II, and EUH 6936 Seminar in European History (Department of History); and PUP 6006 Program Evaluation for Public and Nonprofit Management (Department of Political Science and Public Administration). Also, we have removed the requirement that electives be chosen from three or more disciplines. This is because it is not possible for so many departments to always accommodate the MAIA program in their scheduling of elective courses. Up until now this presented a problem for many students. It is intended that by adding new elective courses from new disciplines, students in the future will find it easier to draw courses from several disciplines.
