As a leading professional school of international affairs, PSIA is proud of the fact that our teaching faculty comprise an equal balance of academics and practitioners.
Our 400 world-renowned professors and leading practitioners teach over 400 courses annually in the most salient fields of international affairs.
Our students have the opportunity to engage with distinguished political scientists, economists, historians, sociologists, lawyers, as well as diplomats, army generals, development specialists, leaders in the energy sector, writers, directors of international organizations, entrepreneurs, and founders of NGOs.
Accordingly, PSIA meets two crucial benchmarks for leading professional schools: academics at the top of their fields and professionals with a diverse range of high-level experience.
