The International Education program prepares students for careers in international development building and in strengthening educational systems across the two-thirds world. We are a friendly, supportive, and challenging community of scholar-practitioners who work alongside populations marginalized by structural inequalities such as gender, race, sexualities, ethnicity, poverty, and conflict.

Students in the UMass Amherst International Education program critically engage with development issues related to equitable and quality educational outcomes around the world. They gain the skills and knowledge to become changemakers in the field of international education and development across the two-thirds world.

Our deep commitment to developing scholar-practitioners with a strong foundation in applied theory allows students to explore issues from different perspectives alongside students and faculty from across the globe.
