Glocal International Development is an innovative M.A. program in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. This 18-month program aims to provide students with the academic theory and background, as well as professional skills to work with communities across the globe. An integral part of the program is a four-month internship in a developing country, held during the third semester of the program.
As one of the English-language M.A. programs offered at Hebrew University, Glocal strives to be accessible to a range of students, especially for those coming from abroad. Students come from diverse professional, academic, and cultural backgrounds, comprising a dynamic cohort of up to 25 students.
Glocal’s multicultural and multi-ethnic student body becomes a part of a new generation of development professionals equipped with the latest theories and expertise, capable of comprehending and engaging with the complexities marginalized communities around the world face on a daily basis.
