Contemporary global dynamics create new job markets, roles, and opportunities for those who have the skills needed to redirect their approaches to global change.
In the very near future more than half of new jobs in the US economy will be connected to the global economy. In the EU emerging jobs are increasingly attached to global markets, international affairs, and security. In developing regions, a majority of new jobs will be linked to foreign investment, global commerce, international negotiation, multinational corporations, global markets, security, and NGOs.
Our MAs provide the necessary knowledge base, skills, and abilities to successfully compete in these new job markets. Our Global and International Studies MA programs are taught fully in English by an international team of scholars and practitioners. We utilize the latest trends in flexible graduate programming to include student individualized courses of study to best fit their schedules and professional commitments. Online and distance course options can complement a maximum 2-semester residency requirement in Salamanca.
Our Think Tank offers research openings and hands-on professional development as well as access to networks of experts in your chosen field of specialization. In addition, through our Global Internship Program, our students can engage in a wide range of internships and job opportunities in Madrid, Brussels, and/or Washington D.C.

The transformation of warfare and organized violence, combined with highly debated understandings of the roles of ethnicity and nationalism in intra- and international conflicts, require a fresh perspective. This masters focuses on the intersections of conflict, conflict management, and identity politics.
The scientific and social science communities recognize that a number of important problems in international relations and the increasing pace of globalization cannot properly be understood without an appreciation of relevant scientific and technological issues.
