How This Program Works
Assignments in all courses directly connect to improving your existing work. For example, if you’re learning about grant proposals, the assignment is not just to draft a practice proposal; your professor will aid you to create an actual proposal. The support continues to graduation where you will have implemented numerous successful efforts in real life contexts. Then after graduation, you enter Future Generations Global Network where you receive lifelong professional support.
Interactive online learning is a core element of our program. Course materials and learning modules are delivered right from the University’s online instructional platforms. Moodle LMS facilitates the sharing of resources, submission of assignments, and asynchronous communication, while Mahara ePortfolio provides a multi-media environment for students to professionally showcase what they’ve accomplished as their education here progresses. Regularly scheduled classes are held via Zoom video conferencing. With our blended learning curriculum, you really can have it all!
To further support the applied nature of the degree, students have the opportunity to join up to 5 optional residential experiences throughout their course of study. Residentials are supplemental, credit-bearing courses that range between 1-3 weeks and provide students with an opportunity for immersive, hands-on learning and a collaborative educational experience. Typical activities while on the trip include visits to NGOs, both large and small, participation in cultural activities, and on-site learning from various professional organizations. Past Residentials have been based in The Philippines, India, Kenya, Haiti, and throughout the United States, to name just a few.
