Program Description:

The Master of Arts in International Training and Education will prepare students to become leaders in international education and use education both as an instrument of international development and a means of promoting cross-cultural understanding. This program is unique in that it offers students the possibility to focus their study on the non-formal education sector, both in the United States and internationally, allowing an in-depth look at the role non-formal education plays in such areas as community development and adult education. In a small class setting, students learn a grassroots approach to educational and international development that balances traditional and participatory learning methods and fuses practical and theoretical course work.
