Our International Field Program (IFP) provides a platform for emerging practitioners and researchers to gain experience while following a rigorous course of study. The IFP combines extensive pre-departure preparation with in-country seminars, professional internships, project work, and opportunities for independent research with faculty supervision. Students may work with community-based organizations, NGOs, international organizations, and national or local governments. Projects may focus on urban and community development, post-conflict state building, human rights advocacy, citizen journalism, long-term monitoring and evaluation, or other themes. Since its inception in 2002, the IFP has sent more than 1,000 students to 29 countries, from Argentina and Uganda to Lebanon and China.
