The purpose of the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP) is to improve the quality and professionalism of the international affairs workforce. This program is open to all mid-career
military and civilian personnel serving in international affairs who have at least 8 years of professional experience.
Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies (DISCS)
has been appointed by the Director, DSCA to serve as the executive agent for the GMAP. GMAP is
a 12-month course of study in international affairs leading to a Global Master of Arts degree from the
Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
at Tufts University located in Medford, MA. GMAP is specifically designed for mid-career level professionals and is intended to enhance the skills of selected civilian and military personnel
working in international affairs positions.
Temporary Suspension of GMAP
As the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) is nearing completion of the Agency Strategic Plan, 2015-2020, a few areas regarding the SC Community Programs have been identified as requiring further analysis and review. GMAP is one of those areas. Therefore, while the analysis is being completed, the DSCA sponsorship for classes which were scheduled to begin in March and July of 2015 will be suspended. Students currently enrolled with graduation dates in 2015 will continue normally. When the analysis is complete, we will advise the community on the status of GMAP.
