The Master’s of International Affairs in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) is the world’s first virtual Master’s degree in disability policy. At the forefront of technological innovation, the program’s cyberinfrastructure cuts across geographic boundaries, allowing faculty to teach and students to be taught entirely online. Anyone from around the world can apply.
The CIDP Master’s degree, offered by the School of International Service at American University, is the centerpiece program of the Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP), which is led by the Center for Research on Collaboratories and Technology Enhanced Learning Communities (COTELCO), a research center at American University.
The CIDP Master’s degree offers the flexibility of being completed in one year over three terms – Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters – or on an extended part-time basis.
