Heller's MA program in sustainable international development (SID) imparts the knowledge and skills necessary for graduates to design and manage local, regional, national, or international development. Students in the SID program examine models of development, considering whether they are effective, whether they reduce poverty and inequality, and whether they raise the quality of life. Students consider the state of world development, probe issues that affect future generations, and broaden the skills necessary to plan, negotiate, implement, monitor, and evaluate development programs. Students enjoy a year in residence studying with senior researchers and field-level development practitioners, as well as a second-year field project, internship, or advanced study applying and evaluating methods and models of development. A one-year accelerated track is available for those who have at least five years of mid-level management experience in the development field. The Heller School offers a joint MA in Sustainable International Development and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, a dual MA with the Conflict Resolution and Coexistence program, a dual MA/MBA in Sustainable International Development, a dual MA/JD program and a dual MA/LLM program with Northeastern University School of Law.
