Certificate description: As organizations work to address contemporary policy issues,they continue to seek managers and analysts who understand the processes and implications of globalization and who are knowledgeable about cultural, political and economic diversity and linkages. This certificate focuses on acquiring an understanding of cultural differences as well as academic knowledge relevant to public affairs. Both coursework and international experience are required components. All students must complete the required course and three additional graduate-level courses related to Global Public Affairs as approved by the Director of the Global Certificate. To fulfill the requirement of experience abroad, students must demonstrate significant international experience through such activities as student exchange, coursework, internship, Peace Corps, or similar work. The Truman School and the University of Missouri offer such opportunities, though in some cases, this requirement can be fulfilled based on experience prior to enrolling in the Truman School or MU.
