Student Life

Our students come from diverse backgrounds and enter the program with an average of 3-4 years of professional experience primarily in international development.  The core course sequence, co-curricular retreats and workshops foster a close knit community. GHD students bond over class assignments, program committees and events. The opportunity to be a part of this intellectually nurturing cohort while also having access to the larger School of Foreign Service peer network is one of the unique strengths of the Global Human Development Program.
