We serve the entire university through courses and core teaching programs in global affairs, career counseling, and public lectures.

We are the home of the Master in Public Policy in Global Affairs (M.P.P.), a Master of Advanced Study in Global Affairs (M.A.S.) and the undergraduate major in Global Affairs (B.A.). Our academic programs are interdisciplinary, embedded in Yale and designed to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of global affairs.
