Our program is designed for candidates who would like to further deepen their knowledge and abilities to infuse cross-cultural, global issues into organizations and classrooms. Topics and methods relevant to international education are embedded into the program’s courses and activities. Thus, the International Education specialization will ensure that our graduates are prepared to integrate cross-cultural perspectives into curricula, policy, and instruction.
