¿Qué aprenderé?

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 courses taught in their chosen language of study.


Students choose one of the following specializations. You can find out more about what each specialization involves and how it can help shape your career plans with these detailed fact sheets.
