The importance of graduate education in our society continues to increase, but finding an affordable and convenient program can be difficult.  The M.A. on Capitol Hill programs in International Affairs (MAIA) and Congressional and Presidential Studies (CAPS) have been designed to offer world class education for students seeking Master’s degrees, and we make program convenience and cost effectiveness top priorities.

Study While Working:

All of our classes meet once a week and begin at 6:40 p.m. so our students do not have to choose between work and earning a Master’s degree.  Classes are offered at the Hall of States building near Capitol Hill (444 N. Capitol St., across the plaza from Union Station).  To learn more about the location, please visit the Hall of States website at

Affordable Tuition:

Our tuition rates are some of the most reasonable in the D.C. metro area.  Many programs similar to ours charge over $1,500 per credit, nearly $5,000 per course.  For the 2020-2021 academic year beginning summer 2020, we charge $1,190 per credit, or $3,570 per course.
