Many graduates of the Nunn School immediately assume positions with international, national, and local companies. Others begin careers in government agencies, international government, or non-governmental organizations. Still others undertake postgraduate study in law, management, international relations, economics, and other fields. Undergraduates who wish to pursue graduate study in international affairs at Georgia Tech may enroll in a specified number of graduate-level courses, which may be applied to the MS in International Affairs.

The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, the only professional school of international affairs at a major technological institution, offers three outstanding degree programs.
The Bachelor of Science in International Affairs (BSIA) provides students with the skills to engage in strategic planning and analysis in an interdependent and multicultural world. In partnership with the IAC School of Modern Languages and the School of Economics, the Nunn School also offers the Bachelor of Science in International Affairs and Modern Languages (IAML), with concentrations in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish, and the Bachelor of Science in Economics and International Affairs (EIA).
The School offers BS, professional MS, and PhD degrees, as well as a minor in international affairs and certificate programs in Asian affairs, European affairs, European Union studies, and Latin American affairs. In addition, our students expand their horizons through a range of study abroad programs, internships, and involvement in a host of on- and off-campus activities.
We offer a master's degree in international affairs that enables its graduates to assume professional positions within business, government, and international organizations. The Master of Science in International Affairs (MSIA) develops theoretical and methodological skills while addressing individual interests through elective offerings in the School and through interdisciplinary work in other fields.
The PhD in International Affairs, Science and Technology enrolled its first class in the fall of 2008. This program provides advanced study of international affairs to students with backgrounds in either political science or science and technology.
