Intern for six weeks in Accra, Ghana this summer where you will acquire hands-on experience and develop professional skills and networking relationships within the international education field. This internship is primarily designed for students in the International Education graduate program, but is open to non-International Education students contingent on the following: (1) you have reviewed the course syllabus (see here) and understand that the course is geared towards MA International Education students, but you are seeking a job in the field as it is broadly defined; and (2) you have received approval from your academic adviser before applying.

There are many organizations in Ghana that are committed to international development and/or education in Accra. Opportunities include formal and informal education, international organizations, local and community-driven development, and a position at NYU Accra. Projects may involve health and education programming for laborers, rural education programming for girls, microenterprise training, child rights awareness, and women’s empowerment initiatives.
