Bologna, Nanjing, and Washington—Welcome to Open House, prospective students. Surely, you are experiencing information overload as you listen to stimulating panels, speak to smart students and accomplished faculty, sit in on dynamic classroom discussions, and learn about the fun foreign language requirements (SAIS is a rare IR breed in that it offers an extensive language program integrated into the curriculum). When you have a moment, we encourage you to watch three films that offer a glimpse into the world of SAIS across our three campuses in Bologna, Italy; Nanjing, China; and Washington, D.C.
Chances are, you know these words well: AFP, CNS, Evolution of the International System and Theories of IR — SAIS’ four core courses. But are they still relevant? Are they covering the right material? Do they need revision? Listen to Erik Jones, head of the European Studies program at SAIS, and students, weigh in on this issue in this video.
SAIS Europe celebrates Thanksgiving in the annual feast in the auditorium — and a special guest appearance by the SAIS Europe-pardonned turkey.
