The mission of the Humanitarian Assistance Program is to prepare students to work in the humanitarian field. The program provides students with the theoretical and practical underpinnings for humanitarian work which is technically sound, engages with affected communities, responds to the diverse needs of affected populations and sets the stage for sustainable and inclusive recovery and development.
A limited number of students pursuing a master's degree at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies are admitted to the Humanitarian Assistance Certificate Program each year. Admission is extremely competitive on the basis of experience, focus and motivation.
Current Humanitarian Assistance students and alumni of the program are working in the humanitarian field in the US and abroad.
