Online M.A. in Global Development and Justice
Connect to our global network
There’s never been a better time to sharpen your skills. Our M.A. in Global Development and Justice combines the intensity of on-the-ground training with the flexibility of an online degree program. We encourage you to apply now. Cohorts begin once per year in the spring. The application deadline is April 1st for admission into the online cohort.
Train in the field with dedicated professionals
This distinctive academic experience begins with two weeks in Rwanda or Thailand (alternating locations each year), where you’ll connect with peers who are just as passionate about improving communities as you are. Together you’ll glean insights from practitioners and specialists, study the world’s most pressing issues, and team up with NGOs that are involved in compassion initiatives, poverty alleviation, and combating injustice.
Be part of a vibrant online community
As part of our online community, you’ll build on the lessons you learned and the relationships you formed in Rwanda or Thailand. Our online courses are designed to promote dialogue, and our expert faculty will provide the guidance you need. The program includes a 300-hour internship (or a collaborative research project if you have at least three years of field experience).
Expand your training in justice and sustainable development
Restoring individuals and communities – and keeping them on a sustainable path – lies at the heart of our program. You’ll learn how to integrate biblical theology, Christian ethics, and the social sciences to bring justice to people who are oppressed and marginalized. By the time you graduate, you’ll be better prepared to bring permanent change to communities by involving them in the transformation process.
