Our Program

At the Korbel School, students, faculty and practitioners work collaboratively on some of the most pressing issues facing our world.

As one of the top-ranked schools for international relations and public policy, the Korbel School offers a hands-on approach to learning that seeks to contribute to a sustainable world—and today our mission is more important than ever.

We are taking on the great challenges of our time: making the global economy more equitable and inclusive, responding to new and emerging security threats, advancing human rights and social justice, combating climate change and promoting healthy democracy.

We offer flexible and interdisciplinary training in a variety of fields, and our graduates pursue jobs in all areas of foreign policy, non-governmental and multilateral organizations. Students design their own specializations within degree programs and may elect to add graduate certificates in order to further enhance their areas of expertise.

Thanks to small classes, mentored research and experiential learning—and a 95% job placement rate—Korbel students are ultimately employed as change-agents in organizations around the world.
