The International Policy Concentration can be fulfilled in a variety of course clusters. The courses list in the concentration course link, reflect the rich variety of internationally focused courses offered at Luskin and throughout UCLA. In consultation with their faculty advisor, students can select a minimum of three related courses to create an international policy concentration. However, the Department recommends fulfilling this concentration through the Luskin Global Public Affairs certificate program. GPA @ UCLA Luskin provides intellectual preparation for future experts who plan to work within the realm of global public affairs. It offers four interdisciplinary Certificates in Global Public Affairs, which can be obtained within the MPP degree from the Luskin School. The academic clusters that the certificates encompass are: Global Processes and Institutions, Global Urbanization and Regional Development, Global Environment and Resources, and Global Health and Social Services.
Global Public Affairs also offers summer fellowships abroad through GPA’s International Practice Pathway. Additionally, we host various events throughout the year, including prominent lectures, practical workshops, and career talks.
Students can also participate in the numerous public lecture and colloquium series offered the International Institute and its various centers.
