Academics

The MSFS curriculum is both practical and theoretical: practical because most students seek a two-year master's degree as a stepping stone to professional careers; theoretical because the opportunity to think conceptually about particular problems is the "value added" that the university brings to professional training. MSFS students take small classes designed to meet their needs, taught by a faculty devoted to their development. 

In addition to curricular requirements, there are programmatic requirements for students pursuing the MSFS degree, including proving language proficiency, passing a final oral examination, and completing an internship related to the MSFS curriculum. MSFS students also have the opportunity to pursue a variety of dual degree opportunities. 

Read this section of the website to learn more about these degree requirements and the variety of academic opportunities available to MSFS students. Currently enrolled students may access Blackboard, which houses the bulletin for the MSFS Program.
