AGS Signs Dual Program Partnership with American University, Washington, D.C.

Wednesday, 06 September 2017

d10_255_027_cropped.jpgAGS recently signed an academic partnership with American University in Washington, D.C. allowing us to offer a new dual program opportunity. AGS students and AGS recent alumni may now apply to earn American University’s Master of International Service in only one year after completing AGS’s Master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomacy.

American University (AU) is well known for its academic programs in international service, public policy and public affairs, international law, and human rights. AU’s School of International Service, through which this dual option is offered, is a top ten school for international relations. Through this partnership, AU applies some of the graduate credits earned at AGS toward its Master of International Service, thus reducing the number of credits that have to be completed in residence at AU.

The complementarity of the two programs, their respective specific expertise in the field, and the school locations in two of the world’s main political capitals, make this association ideal for the study of international affairs.

“This partnership is an optimal match,” says AGS’s president Eileen Servidio-Delabre. “Washington, D.C., just like Paris, offers a wealth of political, cultural, educational and professional resources, as well as unique networking opportunities for students in international affairs. This makes both locations perfect for a combined academic and practical experience. In addition, AGS and AU share a strong commitment to peacebuilding, human rights, engagement in political activism, community service, and sustainable development.”

Other dual program options at AGS include a US-accredited M.A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution in partnership with Arcadia University (PA, USA), a Master in Diplomacy and International Negotiation in partnership with Université Paris-Sud (France), and an LL.M. in French and European Law and Business Ethics in partnership with Université de Cergy Pontoise’s Law School.
