About

The Humanitarian Assistance and Crisis Management (Part-Time Hybrid) at School for International Training will develop the knowledge and skills needed to respond to complex emergencies around the globe.

Overview

Key Facts about Humanitarian Assistance and Crisis Management (Part-Time Hybrid) at School for International Training

Humanitarian action and crisis management professionals are needed now more than ever. Natural disasters are worsening with climate change and have compounded with violent conflicts, famines, and other global crises to produce complex emergencies and an unprecedented number of vulnerable communities worldwide.

Geared toward working- or aspiring-humanitarian professionals who seek to advance their career without leaving their jobs and community commitments, this interdisciplinary graduate program provides you with the knowledge and practical skills to lead principled and effective humanitarian response initiatives around the globe.

You will begin with a two-week summer residency on SIT’s Vermont campus, where you will meet your cohort and faculty, and begin your coursework.

For the rest of the summer and into spring, you will study online, alongside your cohort, building a critical understanding of humanitarian principles and the emerging trends in humanitarian action and refugee studies. You will learn the theoretical frameworks and practical skills for leading a crisis response; designing, implementing, and monitoring programs in a variety of humanitarian sectors; and conducting a field-based enquiry.

During the fifth semester, you will conduct a virtual or in-person practicum project at a community-based organization (CBO), NGO, or INGO to gain hands-on experience in humanitarian assistance and crisis management.

In your final semester, you will study international human rights and humanitarian law and complete a capstone to master ethically and culturally appropriate field practice and research, enabling you to provide evidence-based recommendations and interventions in a range of humanitarian sectors.

By the conclusion of the program you will be equipped with the critical knowledge and practical tools needed to succeed as a future humanitarian professional and confront human-made and natural disasters in an increasingly complex world.
