Are you a veteran considering graduate school? SIT values your experience, voice, and perspective.

Throughout its history, SIT has welcomed and valued the real-world experiences its students bring into the classroom.

Consider combining your military experience and leadership skills with the knowledge and tools gained through a master’s degree.

Become an effective change-maker in critical fields such as sustainable development; TESOL; peacebuilding and conflict transformation; and international education.
