MTSU On the Record Takes You Around the World in 36 Credit Hours

MTSU’s unique international affairs master’s degree is the subject of the next edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Moses Tesi, a professor of political science, will be aired from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, April 14, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 20, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).

The Master of Arts in International Affairs degree offers concentrations in two areas: international security and peace studies and international development and globalization. It was approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents in 2011.

Candidates must complete at least 36 semester hours of graduate-level designated courses. The degree program provides students with the tools to evaluate national or international policies, an understanding of foreign cultures and the foundations for a professional international career and/or doctoral level study.

“For example, a student who works in international development could really do a practicum … at the World Bank, United Nations, the United States Agency for International Development, or, for that matter, nongovernmental organizations such as CARE, International Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and so forth,” Tesi said.
