The Certificate Program in International Development Policy and Management

The Certificate Program in International Development will equip UW graduate and professional students from a wide range of disciplines with the conceptual framework and practical tools to become effective practitioners in international development work. The Certificate will complement current Masters and PhD programs, and can be completed within a normal two-year Masters program. The 21-credit curriculum includes a strong interdisciplinary core with flexible elective options, drawing upon faculty expertise throughout the university. The program will stimulate University-wide faculty collaboration in preparing students to understand theories of development; combine professional skills with policy expertise; assess the impact of development programs and strategies; and analyze, plan and participate in economic, social and political change. Certificate program students will also be required to complete an International Development Practicum in an international development agency, NGO or project. This is a joint UIF-Tools for Transformation award.
