Research is fundamental to the study of global affairs. Through exposure to cutting edge research by leading global affairs scholars and by the undertaking of original research projects, students enrich their educational experience, deepen their knowledge, and expand their intellectual horizons. The Global Affairs program offers opportunities to become more involved in research, challenging students to think creatively and pose innovative solutions for the most complex global problems we face today.
