MA in International Training and Education
The International Training and Education Program (ITEP) is a multidisciplinary master’s program that focuses on education both as an instrument of international development and as a means of promoting cross-cultural understanding.
The master's program provides students with a strong theoretical background in the foundations and practice of education coupled with solid knowledge, skills, and experiences in policy formulation, program/project design and management, training program design, and intercultural learning. In today’s global environment, international education specialists play an increasingly important role as teachers, trainers, administrators, program and project managers, and change agents for improved social justice and welfare.
ITEP emphasizes practical application of academic work and career development. Our students take advantage of ITEP’s faculty contacts and alumni network for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities.
The master's degree in international training and education prepares students for professional careers in international development education, international exchange and study abroad, or global education. ITEP’s location in the nation’s capital gives students an ideal opportunity to take advantage of its proximity to a plethora of international organizations. Some of the places our graduates are working include the American Councils, Creative Associates International, CARE, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, National Institutes of Health, Peace Corps, Save the Children, U.S. Agency for International Development, U.S. Department of State, World Bank, World Learning, and World Vision.
