The School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) at UC San Diego is an interdisciplinary, discovery-driven graduate school focusing on international affairs and public policy. We offer an original and rigorous approach to policy, as our goal is to create global policy solutions that matter — from climate change to food security, democracy, migration, human rights, security and much more. At GPS, students learn from world-class professors while surrounded by a diverse body of students from all walks of life, creating a global, holistic classroom experience in our degree programs. And our San Diego location gives us the freedom to seek progress untethered from tradition and lean into the power of the Pacific Coast as a hub of innovation, diversity and proactive problem-solving. From here, you can make an impact anywhere.
