LSE and the Elliott School of International Affairs| at The George Washington University| in Washington, DC are pleased to announce that LSE graduate students and recent alumni are now eligible to apply for the Master of International Studies (M.I.S.) degree program. The M.I.S. is a multidisciplinary, academic dual degree program that is designed to complement your studies at LSE with an intensive year in Washington, DC.
