Congratulations to the newest members of the SAIS community! 👏 Current students shared their advice for choosing a graduate program below. ⤵️

Think about graduate school as a community you’ll be joining not just for two years, but for life. An important element of my decision-making process was talking to SAIS alumni and learning about their experience. Their stories of growth, opportunity, and connection helped inspire my decision to commit to Johns Hopkins. —Ryan Sheets, current Master of Arts in International Relations student and Donald M. Payne fellow

Pick a school whose faculty speaks to you. Understand your academic and professional goals, and seek faculty mentors that can assist you in reaching your destination. —Aditi Mahesh, current Master of Arts in International Relations student

Select a school that is both academically challenging and conducive to their personal growth. This is an impressive institution and the caliber of your peers might be intimidating, but you belong here. —Pip Baitinger, current Master of Arts in International Relations student

Treat grad school as a genuine investment in the intellectual development you need to succeed in your professional life and not just as a pathway to earning a credential you can put on your resume. —Daniel White, current Master of International Public Policy student

Take as much time as you need to understand the costs and benefits of the program you choose. —Esther Manu, current Master of Arts in International Relations student

Fostering Both Passions and Careers 02/12/2024

Meet SAIS student Aditi Mahesh, a Master of Arts in International Relations second year hailing from the U.S., Singapore, and India.

Q: What led you to SAIS?

A: My crude introduction to geopolitics began at a young age in 2008 when I watched terrorists overtake my city of residence, Mumbai, on Nov. 26. Although I was young, this formative experience went on to color my academic interests, and pushed me into the world of South Asian geopolitics. I knew early on that I wanted to pursue international relations, both in my undergraduate and graduate studies.

Of the schools that I was choosing between, I was drawn to SAIS’ comprehensive South Asian studies faculty, and having taken South Asia classes here, I can confidently say I made the right choice.

Between Professor Devesh Kapur and Professor Joshua White, the academic and professional opportunities for a career in South Asia policy are comprehensive. SAIS’ faculty have fostered my passion for the South Asian region and set me up with robust tools for a career.

Fostering Both Passions and Careers I chose SAIS to learn from my fellow peers — who are activists, scholars, refugees, public servants, and experts — as much as SAIS’ world-renowned faculty.
