The Ford Dorsey Program in International Policy Studies (IPS) is a multidisciplinary Masters program dedicated to the study and analysis of the international system.

Its goal is to provide students with in-depth exposure to a range of issues that they will face in the 21st century, and to develop a foundation of skills and knowledge to address those issues.

IPS allows students to focus on the international economic system, developing and transition societies, security issues, or the world environment.
