Most people would love to make a positive impact in societies around the globe. Participating in international assistance efforts not only helps other communities abroad but opens a huge knowledge base of what other poverty stricken societies really go through.
UMass Boston recently launched a new online Graduate Certificate in International Development. This certificate might be a good start for individuals looking to make a change in communities abroad. The 15 credit program explores the dynamics of international assistance efforts. It places particular emphasis on the positive and negative impact of globalization on poor and developing societies and the responsibilities of wealthier societies in that equation. The practical and theoretical curriculum will prepare students for careers in international development in such fields as: project management, consulting, project monitoring and evaluation and grantsmanship.
