Area Studies master’s degrees
At HLS, you can acquire deep regional expertise in areas of vital strategic and cultural importance. All of our master’s programs are flexible, allowing students to tailor their studies to their own interests. And all of our master’s programs are conducted with the multidisciplinary perspectives that ensure that HLS graduates have the agile minds and nimble skills to advance their careers, whether inside or outside academia and whether nationally or internationally.
A graduate degree in an HLS area studies program is invaluable. To cite only one example, nearly a third of the graduates of our European Studies program are now U.S. Foreign Service officers who serve as military attachés in American embassies in Europe.
