My experience at SIT has helped me a lot in my current role working on democracy and governance programs with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, an international think tank and development agency. I am managing an entire office and am using a lot of the tools I learned at SIT. Thank you to the SIT faculty for the great courses.

Field workshopGet a strong foundation in and understanding of the field of international education. Our low-residency format allows you to complete most of your coursework online so you can stay in your job and community.

Through an experiential learning model, you’ll develop expertise in advising, exchange management, community education, and nonprofit and volunteer program management.

This program is popular with international education professionals who have a master’s degree in another field and are looking to increase their understanding of international education, as well as with individuals seeking a one-year, low-residency program.

The 20-credit curriculum follows the same sequence as the first year of our MA in International Education program. If you choose, you can easily continue with our low-residency master’s program after you complete the certificate program.

Degree Sequence
