Each student in the Master of Global Policy Studies program must select a specialization, which consists of 15 credits (usually five three-credit courses) that fit together to give the student a depth of knowledge in a particular area of global affairs. All specialization courses must be taken for a letter grade and must be approved by the appropriate specialization coordinator. Students can pick from any of the specializations listed below, or create their own specialization, subject to approval by the graduate adviser.

International Energy, Environment and Technology considers the global dimensions of natural resources, the environment, science and technology.
