Get a Degree on Your Terms

Our students come from all over the world and are at every stage of their careers. We understand that students need degrees that work with their lives and goals. That’s why we offer degrees in a variety of formats.

Whether you need a program that’s part time or full time, in a classroom or online, in one location or in multiple sites around the world, we have the format for you.

Global format

TanzaniaOur full-time global degrees take you to multiple sites around the world to get on-the-ground training and international experience. You’ll spend a full semester in up to three countries, engaging with the challenges and innovations in each. You’ll learn from experts both in the classroom and on field visits.

On-campus format

Our full-time programs in Brattleboro, Vermont, and Washington, DC, let you connect more deeply with a single community. In Vermont, you’ll be in the heart of numerous grassroots social and environmental movements, while in DC, you’ll have access to international NGOs and government agencies. Most of your learning will take place in the classroom.

Part-time format

washingtonOur part-time and low-residency programs are designed so working professionals can get a degree while staying in their jobs. Our part-time program in DC allows local professionals to attend classes on evenings and weekends. Low-residency programs are for students who live further away: they spend one to two weeks on campus in the summer and then complete the rest of their coursework online.
