MA in International Development
Started in 2006, the Master of Arts in International Development provides training and education that focuses on the specific needs and issues facing development workers and nongovernmental organizations. The program targets leaders, facilitators and managers of development projects who want to enhance their theological framework for development, hone their skills and gain a better understanding of the spiritual, social, economic and cultural perspectives that impact social transformation in the U.S. and abroad.
Full or Part-time Options
The 32-credit MA in International Development is offered in two delivery formats:
- The Full-time Traditional Delivery takes place on our main campus in St. Davids over the course of a traditional school year starting each fall semester. It includes a 3-6 month internship (field placement) in a developing country after the year of classroom work.
- The Part-time Blended Online Residency Format takes place either on our main campus in St. Davids or in Africa. This model combines an annual extended residency (2.5 weeks) with online course work and takes approximately two years to complete.
We look forward to having you join our community of learning, service, ministry, and prayer, as you feel God’s call to do so!
