International Diploma in Humanitarian Assistance (Adv Cert)

While our courses can be taken stand-alone, they can also be taken in pursuit of an advanced certificate certified by New York State's Education Department. Upon successful completion of any of these programs, students will receive an Advanced Certificate from Fordham University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) that is equivalent to 8 graduate level academic credits. Courses are designed to accommodate the schedules and work patterns of humanitarian workers through one-, two-, and four-week intensive sessions held in exciting locations around the world, including Amman, Barcelona, Kathmandu, New York City, and Vienna. These credits are accepted towards our Master of Arts in International Humanitarian Action (MIHA) and may be transferred to other academic institutions.
