IDP-780 Supervised Practicum for Master of Arts Degree in International Development
Professional service and direct action are core features of international development work, and therefore a critical aspect of graduate-level preparation. The IDMA¿s supervised practicum is designed to offer practical field experience observing and working in an international development assistance organization, federal agency, for- or non-profit organization, or other development-related venue. The supervised field practicum provides students with a critical first opportunity to integrate didactic interdisciplinary study of international development with professional interaction and engagement in an international development organization, federal agency, non-profit organization, or other international development entity (think tank, policy institute). An on-site supervisor and a university-based supervisor (practicum instructor) provide supervision and guidance to promote students¿ professional development, and application of theoretical knowledge to real-world international development situations, issues, and opportunities.
Prerequisites: Current enrollment in the International Development Masters of Arts Program; or permission of instructor
