Professional Schools of International Affairs on the Eve of the 21st Century.
Goodman, Louis W.; And Others
This report offers a descriptive and prescriptive discussion of changes under way at member schools of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA). It analyzes data provided by a 1994 survey of all 15 member schools on the manner and extent to which they are adapting their programs to better prepare their students to face new global challenges. Survey data are analyzed in terms of curricula, students, and faculty. The report recommends steps to make international affairs professional programs more responsive to the demands of the 21st century. Recommendations are presented in the areas of admissions policy, curricula, teaching methods, faculty, student services, campus relations, special programs, and the role of the APSIA. Descriptions of one sample curricular program at each APSIA member school are offered to demonstrate the breadth, depth, and capacity for innovation of the APSIA schools. Curricular topics include human rights, international business, international development, international economics, international environmental studies, international political economy, international public health, international security studies, midcareer professional programs, and science/technology/international affairs. Appendixes contain a copy of the survey form, a workshop agenda, and a bibliography of 69 items. (JDD)
