Since its inception in 2002, the International Field Program has provided a way for emerging practitioners to gain experience in the field while following a rigorous course of study that provides a critical context for understanding global issues.
Over the past decade, more than 660 students have participated in the International Field Program (IFP), in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe. Students gain practical field experience through work and research with NGOs, international organizations, government, and local agencies. The program is open to all master's students at the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy and, with approval, to students across The New School.
Students who meet the eligibility requirements can apply to the IFP and are selected through a competitive review process.
The 2013 IFP offers seven summer sites, where students work on projects ranging from postconflict state building to long-term monitoring and evaluation of projects with international organizations such as the World Bank. Participating students earn six graduate credits. If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
