Students Engage Global Communities


Mary Steurer | June 30, 2019

The Keough School of Global Affairs is dispatching its second cohort of master of global affairs students to 18 countries this summer to research solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Students will explore topics of global interest, including public health, education, displacement and migration, poverty studies, and peacebuilding, seeking inventive ways to break through barriers to human development.

MGA students pursuing concentrations in Sustainable Development and Global Affairs + Specialization will spend eight weeks in the field as part of the Keough School’s Integration Lab, while those concentrating in International Peace Studies will participate in six-month peacebuilding internships.

Each student will work with a partner organization actively involved in their area of study.

“The MGA program’s professional field experiences are designed to build cross-cultural competencies and foster global citizens while providing an opportunity for students to build professional skills through intimate collaboration with some of the world’s finest organizations,” said Ted Beatty, associate dean for academic affairs at the Keough School and professor of history. “These opportunities reflect the Keough School’s mission to advance human development worldwide.”

During this time, students will share stories and reflections via the Keough Insider blog.
