Prepare yourself to bring positive change to today’s critical social problems—hunger, poverty, and powerlessness.
You must transfer in 60 credits from an accredited college or university and complete a 90-credit, six-semester program at the Institute. In addition to relevant course work, students choose one of eight specializations as well as a professional practicum, in which you can apply the specific policy and development skills you’ve learned in a hands-on field opportunity. Students also take intercultural competence courses and/or courses taught in their chosen language of study. See the curriculum for more details.
