MA in International Nongovernmental Organizations

Be the change you want to see in the world. In a rapidly globalizing universe, International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) often play a role equal to that of governments and businesses. In developing countries they even become responsible for providing integral educational and health services.

Growing employment opportunities in this sector make it possible to earn a living while improving the quality of life of the most needy in organizations like Amnesty International, Novib, Doctors Without Borders, Greenpeace, the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Society and United Nations support organizations.
