Foreign Area Officer (FAO) MA Programs
Foreign Area Officers are commissioned officers in any of the four U.S. Armed Forces who are regional experts and possess a unique combination of political, cultural, sociological, economic, and geographic awareness. FAO’s typically serve overseas assignments as defense attachés, security assistance officers, or as political-military planners.  Providing courses in over 40 foreign languages and supported through five regional study centers, KU offers 12-18 month MA programs for FAOs in the Americas, Europe, Eurasia, China, North Africa, Middle East, North Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. KU is one of the few universities nationwide that responded to the Army requirement and successfully developed multiple one-year MA programs for FAOs. For more information about KU’s FAO programs, contact: Trent Williams FAO coordinator
