International Development Curriculum and Course Descriptions

Gain Essential Knowledge

International Development requires a combination of innovative thinking and the ability to act in an evolving world. Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota understands this, combining more than 100 years of Lasallian education with real-world practitioners who have worked on social development, microfinance, global education and more. Our courses blend theory with true “boots on the ground” practicality for a perfect balance of thoughtfulness and action.

The online M.A. in International Development program consists of 39 credit, or 13 courses of 3 credit hours each and the program typically takes about 2.5 years to complete.
