Considering the undergraduate program's dedication to global leadership, it is no surprise that the cornerstone of Tufts University's jurisprudence is international affairs. The Fletcher School is the oldest graduate school of international affairs in the United States and offers six degree programs: Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy, (MALD), Master of Arts (MA), Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP), Master of International Business (MIB), Master of Laws in International Law (LLM) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Fletcher students can further supplement their education by participating in one of the many joint or dual degree programs available.
As a "multidisciplinary approach" to global solutions, Fletcher combines theory and practice in its integrated curriculum and encourages students to personalize their education by tailoring their own cross-disciplinary program. While every student gains knowledge through the school's three divisions (International Law and Organizations; Diplomacy, History and Politics; and Economic and International Business), he also chooses one or two concentrations from 22 fields of study for a truly bespoke educational experience.
Fletcher's international focus doesn't end once students leave the classroom, as more than 40 percent of the student body is from outside of the United States. Students are encouraged to socialize in student clubs and organizations spanning from a premier a cappella group to a soccer team, to numerous cultural societies from across the globe.
