Master's Degrees

Master of Arts in Intercultural Relations (MAIR): The School of International Studies has partnered with the Intercultural Communication Institute (ICI) in Portland, Oregon to offer a distinctive Master of Arts degree in Intercultural Relations (MAIR). Designed to prepare students for stimulating new opportunities at home and abroad, or to increase skills in an existing career, our program offers a unique curriculum in a creative format.University of the Pacific, California's first chartered university (1851), has a distinguished history in both graduate and undergraduate education. The Intercultural Communication Institute has long been a leader in the field of intercultural communication, providing professional development and graduate education for practitioners in the field. The strength of the MAIR program emerges from the School of International Studies' leadership in international education and graduate learning, and the ICI's theoretical and social action approach to intercultural education. Both appreciate the art of translating theory into practice, and share a vision of engaging, developmental learning.

Accelerated Master of Arts in International Policy Studies or Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies: The School of International Studies (SIS), in collaboration with the Graduate School of International Policy and Management (GSIPM) at Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) in Monterey, California, offers students the opportunity to pursue a Master of Arts degree in International Policy Studies or Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies at MIIS. This accelerated degree is designed to be completed within 18 months of entering, which is 1 semester earlier than the usual time required to complete a masters degree.
