Career advising is an integral part of each student’s experience. The goal of the Master’s in Global Human Development is to give students an excellent grounding in development practice and to help them take the next steps toward a challenging and rewarding career after graduation. Through career advising, mentorships, skills clinics, meeting with development professionals and internships, the program will equip students with the skills, experiences and contacts to be the change-makers in development in the 21st century. Career exploration and professional development are strategically integrated into the GHD curriculum. In addition, the Walsh School of Foreign Service’s Graduate Career Center provides a full range of career services and hosts career-related events.
