Mission

The Ford Dorsey Master's in International Policy (MIP) is a two-year, full-time, interdisciplinary graduate degree program devoted to preparing the next generation of leaders for public and private sector careers in international policymaking and implementation. Its curriculum effectively draws upon the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies' (FSI) world-class faculty and multidisciplinary culture, breadth of teaching across theory and practice, and interdisciplinary research capacity, along with Stanford and Silicon Valley’s ethos of innovation. The program offers its master’s students a unique education to examine, understand, and solve complex real-world problems.

The program is designed to integrate perspectives from political science, law, economics, history, and other disciplines, with a focus on social science research methodologies and the implementation of solutions addressing global problems. MIP combines a scholarly focus with practical training designed to prepare students for careers in public service and other settings where they can have an impact on international issues.

University requirements for the M.A. degree are described in the "Graduate Degrees" section of this bulletin.
