The International Education MA Program is designed to prepare professionals who understand the international implications of their responsibilities and have the ability to create and use knowledge across international boundaries. The program develops educational experts who can design, implement, manage and evaluate international education programs in schools, colleges, foundations, multinational corporations, and public and private educational and cultural agencies. Students are exposed to a multidisciplinary faculty consisting of anthropologists, economists, historians, philosophers, political scientists and sociologists, who apply the theoretical, conceptual and methodological advances in the applied social sciences and the humanities to the analysis of international educational policies and institutions.
The program develops educational experts who can design, implement, manage, and evaluate international education programs in schools, colleges, foundations, multinational corporations, and public and private educational and cultural agencies.

Internships may be arranged in the United States or abroad through such organizations as the United Nations, the Institute for International Education, Metro International, the US Department of State, the Hudson Institute, and the Asia Society.
