Global & International Studies - Interagency Track
The Global Interagency Studies track of the M.A. in Global and International Studies program is fully funded by the United States Special Operations Command and is specifically tailored for Special Operations Forces officers. The program is now in its fourth year. Eligible students are nominated by the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College and admitted to KU through the Center for Global and International Studies. After successful completion of the graduate program, the University awards each graduate a Master of Arts in Global and International Studies with a Concentration in Global Interagency Studies.
The Interagency Studies curriculum consists of 33 credit hours, with KU granting six hours of credit for ILE education. The remaining 27 credit hours come from nine KU courses that are taught at two locations: night courses at the Command and General Staff College and day courses at KU's main campus in Lawrence. The night-school classes - four courses taken in sequence - are taught from August to March at the CGSC. The final five courses are taught at KU from April through July. The program is fully integrated into the ILE year to minimize the impact on officers’ time.
