The MA in NGO Management is the first of its kind to be international in scope, but domestic in practice. Students acquire the leadership, management, and organizational skills needed to succeed in the nonprofit sector, both domestically in the U.S., and abroad. The MA in NGO Management is made up of ten asynchronous online courses (6 core courses, 3 electives, 1 capstone), with the occasional 3-week study abroad opportunity (depending on the season). Courses focus on leadership, fundraising, grant writing, strategic planning, project management, communications and resource development. Students complete their studies with a capstone project that focuses on a real-world issue which is relevant to present or future employers. This course is one of the core course requirements of the degree.
We invite applications to fill an adjunct teaching position (10-15 hours/week), non-tenure track, semester-by-semester hire. The degree and certificate programs are fully online. The adjunct professor will report to the Program Director for the MA in NGO Management and the Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
