The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. observed, "…through our scientific genius we have made of the world a neighborhood; now through our moral and spiritual genius we must make of it a brotherhood." It seems, though, that we are farther from realizing King's vision today than when he spoke those words a half century ago, December, 1956 in Montgomery, Alabama. The ways and means to his vision remain elusive, and people throughout the world remain vulnerable to humankind’s assaults upon itself.
If you are moved by Dr. King's challenge, you may well be interested in our International Training and Education Program (ITEP). The Master of Arts degree in ITEP will allow you to concentrate your study in international development education, global health, international exchange and study abroad, or global education.
In ITEP, we bring together committed faculty and students whose academic backgrounds and international experiences are rich and varied; this mix informs the teaching and learning in the program. We also work to ensure that all who join the program can take full advantage of the culturally and educationally enriching resources of Washington, D.C., one of the great international cities.
We welcome phone and e-mail inquiries and encourage you to visit American University to witness first-hand what we do in ITEP. We are proud of our commitment and of our excellence, and welcome inquiries from all who aspire to work toward our shared goals.
