About Us

The Institute of World Politics is a graduate school of national security and international affairs. Whether your career goals aim toward diplomacy, the Intelligence Community, humanitarian aid, political leadership, or the corporate world, IWP is dedicated to developing leaders with a sound understanding of international realities and the ethical conduct of statecraft.

IWP is fully accredited and offers three M.A. degrees:
  • Strategic Intelligence Studies
  • Statecraft and International Affairs
  • Statecraft and National Security
  • 17 graduate certificates, as well as two Executive and Professional M.A. programs.
IWP students learn the arts of statecraft from true practitioner professors, and graduate knowing how each of these tools integrates into national strategy. Our alumni work for government agencies (including State Department, intelligence agencies, and defense), defense contractors, the private sector, active duty military, as well as nonprofit organizations (including Aspen Institute and Peace Corps).
