Glocal International Development

Glocal International Development is an innovative MA 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 or in Israel/Palestine, held during the 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. We offer a unique opportunity to gain development expertise and to play a meaningful role in advancing communities both in Israel and across the world.

In order to ensure the diversity of every cohort, we provide a limited amount of scholarships to students from developing countries. We also offer scholarships to Palestinian students and to selected applicants from Mexico, Argentina and EcuadorFor more details
