The Best International Relations Schools

毎年4月に発表されるUS News Rankingが世間では著名な大学院ランキングとして認知されていますが、なかなか、国際関係学分野に焦点を絞ったランキングはお目にかかったことがありません。左記の分野で数少ないランキングの代表格として、以下Foreign Policy サイトに掲載されているランキングを紹介します。

The results of the 2014 Ivory Tower survey—a collaboration between Foreign Policy and the Teaching, Research, and International Policy (TRIP) project at the College of William & Mary—provide an insider’s guide. Responses from 1,615 IR scholars drawn from 1,375 U.S. colleges and universities determined rankings for the leading Ph.D., terminal master’s, and undergraduate programs in IR. (The scholars were asked to list the top five institutions in each category.) The survey also quizzed respondents about recent historical events and future policy challenges: Just how plausible is a U.S. war with China, for example, and who was the most effective secretary of state over the past 50 years? (Hint: Neither Condoleezza Rice nor John Kerry.)

All told, the Ivory Tower survey offers a window into how America’s top IR scholars see the world today—and which institutions are effectively nurturing future generations of thinkers and policymakers.

以下はFletcher Schoolのホームページより抜粋です。

International Law

The new dual-degree program with the University of St. Gallen will allow students to earn both a master of laws degree in international law (LL.M) from Fletcher and a master’s degree in international law (MIL) from St. Gallen after 18 months to two years of study, depending on course selection. The program started accepting students this fall.

St. Gallen specializes in law, business and international affairs. The executive director of Fletcher’s LL.M Program, John Burgess, has taught at both schools and helped create the new program, in which students will study at both institutions.

出願者の学校選択作業においてはランキングが全てを決定付けるものではありませんが、学校リサーチを行う上で、対象となる学校をリストアップする際には役立つと思います。特に大学院レベルでは、卒業後のキャリアを達成するために適したプログラムである旨をエッセイや推薦状コンテンツを通して入学審査官と共有しなければなりません。そうしたポイントを意識しながら、ランキングと向き合い、学校調査を進めていきましょう。

Top International Affairs Graduate Programs <北米&欧州>

The Foreign Policy Associationが2年前に発表した「世界のベスト50国際関係学大学院プログラム」から、北米とヨーロッパ(英語圏)のプログラムを抜粋してみました。TOEFLが揃い、そしてGREも受験を重ね、少しずつスコアが整い、出願書類への移行にも差し掛かってくる時期ですが、肝心の出願先の選定が遅れている方々も目立ち始めるこの頃です。単なる順位が羅列されているランキングではなく、今回ご紹介させていただいたランキングのように各プログラムの概要や特徴が分かり易くまとめられているサイトは、出願校を絞り込む上で参考にしてはいかがでしょうか。

出願書類を提出した後は?: Fletcher School Admissions Blogより

出願書類を提出した後で面接試験対策へと備えるMBA出願者はまだしも、面接対策も出願条件に含まれておらず、後は結果発表を待つことが課せられた主にM.A. or M.S.プログラム等への出願者の中には、”モヤモヤ”、もしくは”ソワソワ”とした感覚と向き合っている方々はいらっしゃるのではないでしょうか。既に約20年近くに遡りますが、出願者として私もそうした経験の持ち主です。そうした心境を接するかのごとく、Tufts University, Fletcher SchoolのAdmissions Blog.に、” I’ve submitted my application.  Now what?”と題した記事が投稿されていましたので、この場にて紹介させていただきます。

結局のところは、6番目の項目に述べられている
 Your completed application is then given to Committee members to review, and you’ll receive your admission decision in late March.
に従い、積極的な姿勢にて朗報を待ちましょう。
