MOSCOW, JANUARY 18, 2017. PIR PRESS – «The PIR Center and MGIMO have managed to collect some of the foremost experts in the field of nonproliferation from the Russian Federation. We had an opportunity to talk with these people one on one and ask our own personal questions, which is an opportunity I’d never thought I’d have. It has been incredible!» - Noa Mahew, student of the Dual Degree Program in Nonproliferation Studies.

In 2016 the PIR Center started a new educational program – Dual Degree Program in Nonproliferation Studies. Program is jointly organized by PIR Center, MGIMO (Russia), and The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (USA). It is a great opportunity to begin your Master’s level education at MGIMO, continue at Monterey, receive diplomas from both Russian and American universities, and interact with leading experts and practitioners in the field of nonproliferation and global security. The admission for 2017-2019 is already open.

Students from CIS can receive scholarships, significant discounts for tuition fees, and travel grants.

Noa Mahew, one of the students currently enrolled in the program shared his impressions from the first term spent at MGIMO: “The program has been a whirlwind. The PIR Center and MGIMO have managed to collect some of the foremost experts in the field of nonproliferation from the Russian Federation. We had an opportunity to talk with these people one on one and ask our own personal questions, which is an opportunity I’d never thought I’d have. It has been incredible!”
