Program Information

Degrees Offered:

MST Global Technology Development

Format: Online

Program Description:

The Master of Science in Global Technology & Development focuses on international socioeconomic and political change, emphasizing technology and the current processes of globalization. The MSGTD program addresses the global disparity in wealth and access to resources and basic needs, both between and within countries. In addition, the program seeks to better understand the role of technology in creating wealth in nations, as well as its distribution. Issues of culture, history, religion, and social organization are considered as mitigating factors in this process. Students are encouraged to pursue research questions in the developed or the developing worlds, which enables them to engage in social science research on issues related to technology and human socioeconomic and political development. Students take courses in theory, research, policy and regional studies to prepare them for their capstone Master's requirement of a research portfolio or an internship, depending upon their interests and goals. Graduates of the program have been employed in a variety of fields, including the technology industry, the non-profit sector, and the government, including the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development. Students in this program have also served in the U.S. Peace Corps prior to and during their studies.
