    Glocal International Development is an innovative MA program in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The 18-month program aims to provide students with the academic theory and background, as well as professional skills and tools to work with communities across the globe. An integral part of the program is a four-month internship with an international NGO in a developing country, held during third semester of the program. If you are an individual with a global perspective on the one hand, and an appreciation for local solutions on the other, come join Glocal, which offers a unique opportunity to gain development expertise and to play a meaningful role in advancing communities both in Israel and across the world.
