SIT’s online International Education program offers working professionals a flexible and customized path to a Master of Arts. The online program features the same faculty and curriculum as the on-campus program. The difference is the format – students already in the field can update skills and knowledge to keep up with trends in international curricula, program design, and transnational regulations without having to leave their jobs or home communities.
Coursework provides a comprehensive background in the historical, theoretical, and social foundations of international education programs. During the online portion of the program, students can study and complete assignments whenever they choose. This is combined with limited face-to-face interactions and residential coursework, reflective practice, and a final capstone paper and presentation, for a total of 36 credits.
