This semester, The Institute of World Politics welcomed a class of 121 students, including 37 new students and 84 returning students. This class exceeded the predicted enrollment for the fall.
This fall class also includes 7 new doctoral candidates in the Doctor of Statecraft and National Security program which is the largest incoming doctoral class since the program’s launch in 2017.
IWP’s new students hail from colleges and universities around the world. They have worked at think tanks, defense contractors, local government, and federal government. In addition to several students pursuing graduate studies immediately after college, IWP’s incoming class includes our first State Department Fellow, a Capitol Hill staffer, and a special assistant at USAID.
What will they be taking this semester? Our new students are enrolled in classes covering several arts of statecraft, including international relations, economics, and geography, as well as classes in American political thought, Western moral thought, and others.
