I am getting my BA in Psychology, but want to go in a different direction for my masters. I am mainly considering MPAs because I eventually want to work in government/with an agency, and I feel like I can probably get accepted even with a BA in Psychology.

However, my main interest is in International Relations. The problem is that I was financially unable to study abroad. Applying to IR programsis tempting for me, but doing that means that I would have to choose between programs at the same schools. I attend a fairly pricey private college (35k/year) on nearly full scholarship, but the intl scholarships available still required me to pay $2000-3000 out of pocket to study abroad. That would have essentially meant that my mother had no lights and no food. Even with jobs, as a full time student also supporting my disabled mother - I was unable to even afford a plane ticket. Have you heard of anyone getting into a program like this WITHOUT international experience? Should I just go for the MPA and give up on it for a while? My GPA is 3.7 out of 4.0 and as this is my last year, I expect to top out at 3.8.

Advice?
