The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy was established in 1933.

When student protests against the United States' involvement in Vietnam and the presence of ROTC and in-service training officers on campus and particularly the Fletcher School reached a peak in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Fletcher became the focus of student anger. In 1973-74 a combined degree program with the was instituted in which highly qualified undergraduates would be admitted at the end of the Junior year to work toward both the B.A. and the Fletcher M.A. As of 2005, Fletcher enrolls an average of 350 students per year, from the United States and more than seventy countries around the world.
