Master of Arts in International Education (Low Residency)

Program Details

The School for International Training offers a Master of Arts in International Education (Low Residency) for professionals who wish to update their current education knowledge. In order to keep up with the changing trends and revisions, the School has created a program to help professionals remain educated and up to date.

The program was designed with in-class meetings along with online courses. This allows students to meet with professors for a few weeks out of the two years. However, students are allowed complete the rest of their coursework online.

To be qualified for the program, students must meet the following criteria: these include: bachelor’s degree or equivalent, English language ability, Intercultural and professional experience, and capacity for self-directed learning. It is critical for students to be self-motivated, especially when working online and on their own.

The Master of Arts in International Education is a total of 35 credits, consisting of online work, residential coursework, a final capstone paper and presentation. The credit hours are divided into 18 hours of coursework, 15 credits of reflective practice, and two course electives.

Once students have completed the program they should have gained a background in the historical, theoretical and social foundations of the international education programs. This will allow professionals to remain educated on the current international programs.
