The Master of Science in International Affairs at the FSU campus in the Republic of Panama is an interdepartmental graduate program offering globally-oriented professionals the opportunity to acquire an understanding of increasingly complex issues that transcend national boundaries. Courses are selected from the participating departments of Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Political Science, History, Philosophy, Religion, Sociology, Urban and Regional Planning, and the School of Public Administration and Policy. The program is structured so that it can be individually tailored to a wide variety of career goals, but overall the main emphasis is to integrate one´s preparation in any one of the traditional disciplines with an international, interdisciplinary emphasis. The Master´s degree in International Affairs is designed to enable students to pursue successful careers in government service, business, international institutions and non-governmental organizations.
The standard at Florida State University is called Responsible Freedom, which acknowledges that you have the right to justice and public order as well as the responsibility to protect the rights and privileges of fellow community members. FSU Republic of Panama is a branch campus which embodies the same standards as the main campus. Due to the unique nature of our campus, some policy modifications must be made, but where possible, we follow main campus policies. This Student Handbook includes links to policies that are frequently referenced by those on the FSU Panama campus, some of which have been modified specifically for this branch campus.
