2018-2019 Graduate and Continuing Education Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

International Relations (M.A.)

Program Requirements

Twelve courses or 36 credits must be completed for the master’s degree in international relations. Half of these courses (18 credits) must be from the core courses: INR511 , INR512 , INR513 , INR516 , INR531  and INR533 . Ideally, the core courses should be completed prior to taking elective courses. Please consult with the program director for advice regarding the sequence in which courses should be taken.



Matriculated graduate students are welcome to develop a course concentration in an area of their educational and professional interests. A student, for example, may wish to pursue an international relations masters degree with a concentration in homeland security or in cybersecurity and intelligence. Concentrations are conditioned on the availability of sufficient relevant course offering by other Salve Regina University graduate programs. To fulfill the requirements for a concentration, a student may opt to complete three of the required elective courses by selecting available courses from another graduate program degree at Salve Regina University. Please discuss your concentration plans with the program director.
