*About the Program:*

The Masters in International and Regional Studies program combines an
interdisciplinary curriculum, deep regional/thematic expertise, rigorous
methodological training, and international experiences to enable students
to situate global issues and challenges in their cultural, historical,
geographical, political, and socioeconomic contexts and to approach them in
diverse ways. MIRS is designed to prepare students for global career
opportunities, whether in academia, private, or public sectors.

MIRS builds on the strengths of the International Institute’s
interdisciplinary centers and programs. Our centers and programs rank among
the nation’s finest in their respective fields of study; five have been
designated as U.S. Department of Education National Resource Centers.
Students have the unique option of pursuing either a regional or thematic
track with multiple specializations anchored in one of our centers or
programs.

*Specializations include:*
– African Studies
– Islamic Studies
– Chinese Studies
– Japanese Studies
– Middle Eastern and North African Studies
– Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies
– South Asian Studies
– Southeast Asian Studies

Due to the flexibility of the program, students are able to utilize their
coursework to prepare them for many different career paths whether
continuing in academia or directly entering the workforce. This program is
ideal for individuals seeking the cultural, linguistic, and regional
expertise needed to work in an international setting. Additionally, through
the use of a dual degree, students may also be able to further specialize
their skills within their particular niche, setting themselves apart in an
increasingly competitive job market.

The application for *Fall 2022* is open with a deadline to *apply by
December 15, 2021*. The online application can be found on the Rackham
