Abstract : This report provides an overview of more than 1,000 graduate-level international/intercultural training programs. It describes military advanced degree programs, public sector and federally supported programs, advanced academic degrees in international and area studies, and private sector intercultural training. Using library reference sources, an online data base, university catalogs, and interviews with relevant military personnel, Title VI administrators, university officials, corporate executives, and intercultural consultants, the investigators organized extensive information into program abstracts in U.S. Regional and World Area Guides. The U.S. Regional Guides feature program abstracts identifying over 700 intercultural training programs at 200 institutions of higher education that offer graduate-level programs in degree fields appropriate to prepare military personnel for service abroad. Degree fields include business, security affairs, development studies, international communication, and international technology management. The World Area Guides list more than 400 graduate study abroad programs directly linked to major universities in eight world regions. Relevant professional associations and consortia are described.
