Take Two Years and Transform Yourself
The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy is a graduate school offering a range of professional degrees in international affairs. The two-year Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD) is the School’s flagship international affairs degree. While the degree’s name includes its historical “law and diplomacy” origins, the MALD is much more -- it provides an outstanding academic and professional foundation in economics, business, politics, history, and law.
The MALD is academically rigorous, professionally relevant, and truly interdisciplinary. It provides students the knowledge and tools necessary to tackle with world’s most challenging problems. By connecting theory and practice, MALD students transform themselves into well-versed and competent leaders who are able to shape international issues and events across a variety of sectors. The flexibility of the program ensures that students can tailor their education to meet specific personal, academic and/or professional goals. Students learn to understand their own interests and the world using a variety of analytical tools, disciplinary lenses and a wide array of perspectives.
Each year MALD graduates accept challenging positions in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, as well as with international organizations. Employers around the world value Fletcher’s unique multidisciplinary program, which produces graduates who have practical skills and know how to navigate the increasingly complex and globally integrated world.
