Who We Are:

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 knowledge across international boundaries. The program develops educational experts who can design, implement, manage and evaluate international education programs in schools, colleges, foundations, multinational corporations, and public and private educational and cultural agencies. Students are exposed to a multidisciplinary faculty, consisting of anthropologists, economists, historians, philosophers, political scientists and sociologists, who apply the theoretical, conceptual and methodological advances in the humanities and the social sciences to the analysis of international educational policies and institutions.

Students complete a 40-credit curriculum which includes foundational courses in international education theories, qualitative and quantitative research methods, an internship, and electives that develop a specialized area of expertise in a field of international education, as well as an area studies concentration. Students may complete the program in three semesters of full-time study.
