M.A. in International Education
Our International Education program prepares you to understand the global implications of your responsibilities and to apply knowledge across international boundaries. As a student you will become an expert in designing, implementing, managing, and evaluating international education programs for schools, colleges, foundations, multinational corporations, and public and private educational and cultural agencies. Complete a 40-credit curriculum which includes foundational courses in international education theories, qualitative and quantitative research methods, an internship, and electives that develop a specialized area of expertise in a field of international education (global education, international development education, or cross-cultural exchange and training), as well as an area studies concentration. You can complete the program in three semesters of full-time study or five semesters as a part-time student. You’ll study with a multidisciplinary faculty consisting of anthropologists, economists, historians, philosophers, political scientists, and sociologists, who apply the theoretical, conceptual, and methodological advances in the humanities and the social sciences to the analysis of international educational policies and institutions. The internship provides professional work experience and reinforces academic skills. Internships may be arranged in the United States or abroad with such organizations as the Institution for International Education, NYU Office of International Students and Scholars, Sesame Street Workshop, UNESCO, and the U.S. Department of State (Washington, D.C.). Our extensive graduate study abroad courses provide opportunities for cross-cultural exploration and learning throughout the world. Our students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and academic disciplines; many bring to the classroom a rich mix of experiences from living, working, and studying overseas. Generous scholarships are available to help fund your graduate education.
