The Institute currently offers three Master’s degrees: M.A. in Statecraft and National Security Affairs, M.A. in Statecraft and International Affairs, and M.A. in Strategic Intelligence Studies. All are professional degrees designed for students who are pursuing a career in the international affairs, intelligence, or national security fields.
The certificate program is designed for students who wish to pursue graduate studies but do not need a degree, and for those students who already have an advanced degree yet need additional graduate credentials.
IWP has partnerships with the United States Naval War College, the United States Army, and agencies in the intelligence community.
The Institute also welcomes applicants who demonstrate a serious interest in the study of national security and international affairs, but do not need a certificate or degree. Students have the option of enrolling in courses for credit or as auditors (non-credit). Auditors are expected to attend class regularly but are not required to complete the coursework and do not receive a grade or credit for the course.
In Washington, D.C. many professionals begin their careers as interns. Interns regularly include college students, recent graduates and even those who have held professional positions, but are looking to move to a new field. IWP offers a stimulating academic environment, a chance to be a part of a graduate school team, the opportunity to audit a graduate course free of charge and the occasion to be close to Washington scholar-practitioners.
