MA in International Education

International Education Internships

The International Education M.A. Program is designed to prepare professionals who understand the international implications of their responsibilities and have the ability to utilize their knowledge and skills across international and cultural boundaries. We are committed to linking theory and practice. As part of this commitment, each student is required to participate in a semester-long internship with an agency, office, or project involved in some way in international education and an accompanying internship course.

Students earn 3 or 4 credits making meaningful contributions to organizations here in New York, in other cities such as Washington D.C. and internationally. Recent placements include the Institute of International Education, Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies, New York University, Pace University, International Rescue Committee, Inter-American Development Bank, New York Immigration Coalition, Peace Corps, Avenues: The World School, Queens College, United States Department of State, One to World, Sesame Street, Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Office and many more.
