M.S. in International Development and Service

The College of Mount Saint Vincent’s M.S. in International Development and Service prepares students to make a meaningful difference in the world. Participants study a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum ranging across key issues such as social policy and development, global health, multicultural education, and more. The program, in collaboration with IPSL (formerly the International Partnership for Service-Learning and Leadership), integrates learning with substantial, hands-on volunteer service experience in the United States, Asia, Europe, and South America.

Students gain intercultural competency and learn how to navigate complex partnerships in global communities. They graduate ready to lead agencies that serve diverse populations: global non-profits, community development organizations, and other service-based institutions. These service placements put graduates in a strong position to secure career-track employment upon graduation, and our students often land job offers before they graduate.
