Professional Development in International Education - NYC and around the world

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. Students take this largely online professional development course alongside internships in New York City, Washington, D.C., around the U.S., and around the world (our program supports a terrific internship opportunity in Ghana!).  

Through the internship and the accompanying course, students acquire valuable hands-on experience and exposure to real-world issues in careers in the field of international education; develop, practice and receive feedback on basic professional skills identified as especially important by employers and now-employed former students; and develop networking relationships and gain exposure to different roles and professional opportunities within the international education field.

This course is open to graduate and undergraduate students. See the syllabus for the largely online accompanying professional development course here. See here for some of the outstanding contributions and opportunities of the 2017 cohort who interned in Ghana.
