The Law – International Trade and Bus Law program at University of Arizona works closely with the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy program directed by Professor Robert Williams. Through intense collaboration between the two specialized programs, Arizona Law helps students explore how international law can address today’s global problems through courses like: International Trade Law, International Investment Law, Human Rights and Business, International Business Transactions, International Arbitration, International Organizations, Public International Law, International Taxation, Commerce, Migration and Social Justice, The Law of Regional Trade Agreements, and Complex Litigation.

The unique beauty of Tucson’s setting, along with its rich history and cultural diversity through its Native American, Mexican and Spanish forebears, have made it a near-ideal setting for research and graduate-level studies.

The proximity to Northern Mexico and Arizona’s leading role in U.S.-Mexican trade and investment provide excellent opportunities for student research and practical experience in the area of international business. Many faculty members and graduate students are engaged in research and teaching relating to South America, Asia, Africa and Europe as well.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
