The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, commonly referred to as NPSIA (nip-SEE-yuh), is a professional school of international affairs at Carleton University and founded in 1965. The school is housed in the River Building, on Carleton's campus in Ottawa, Canada. Students, alumni and faculty of NPSIA are referred to as NPSIAns (NIP-see-yins).
NPSIA is Canada's oldest school of international affairs, founded during what is commonly considered a golden age of Canadian diplomacy. The school offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of global issues, divided into six fields. NPSIA is the only full Canadian member of the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs, a group of the world's top schools in international affairs.
NPSIA is well regarded within the international affairs community, and admission to the school is highly selective. In 2007, a poll of Canadian academics, intended to determine the best professional masters programs in international affairs, ranked NPSIA at No. 2, tied with Georgetown University, and ahead of programs at universities like Harvard and Columbia. A 2014 survey of Canadian academics in international affairs confirmed NPSIA as the most recommended school in Canada for students seeking a career in policy.
