The Fletcher Community

The Fletcher School offers students a unique environment in which to develop the skills, tools, and preparation needed to excel in today’s highly competitive global economy. Students benefit from Fletcher’s strong and supportive community of students, scholars, alumni, and practitioners.

Established in 1933, Fletcher is the oldest exclusively graduate school of international relations in the country, and has a longstanding tradition of preparing leaders with a global perspective. Even as we update the curriculum to remain current, we maintain the hallmarks of the Fletcher experience: the School’s diversity, community, and flexibility. Through in-class and out-of-class activities, Fletcher students contribute the wisdom they have developed through a wide range of life experiences.

The sense of community is fostered by small classes, accessible faculty members, and a strong network of alumni. The School’s flexible multidisciplinary program of study allows students to design a curriculum that meets their own academic and professional goals. After graduating, Fletcher alumni pursue a broad array of careers in government, business, and international and non-profit organizations.

Fletcher will help you reach your professional goals, whether you choose to work in the public, private, or not-for-profit sector. A Fletcher education is an important step toward becoming a leader with a global perspective.
