Fall Entry (Late August): Students who enter the MA in International Education Management program in the fall can expect to take 16 credits in the fall semester, 4 credits in the January term, and 16 credits in the spring semester. This is a rigorous courseload that prepares students for the International Education Management Practicum. Students will begin the 6-credit practicum in early, mid, or late summer depending on the needs of their host organization. Students are expected to complete the practicum and graduate in December.
Yes, prospective students may apply to begin the MA in International Education Management program in either fall (August) or spring (January).
Applicants are encouraged to apply by the application deadlines for priority consideration. We will continue to review applications for the MA in International Education Management program after the deadlines, as long as space is available. It is anticipated that scholarships/financial aid will continue to be available for late applicants.
Students with extended professional experience in the international education field will have the option, with approval of the program coordinator, to complete a thesis project in lieu of practicum.
A wide variety of MA degrees offered in the U.S. use the term “International Education” or “Comparative and International Education.” These programs typically focus on the social, political, historical, cultural, and economic forces that shape delivery of formal education around the world. We use the term International Education in another context – that is the field of international exchange.
Analysis of the international education field shows increasing professionalization of the field, and the rapidly growing requirement for entry-level professional positions to require master’s degrees.
