About the Program
The International Master’s Program in Child Development was established with the goal of improving the lives of children at risk in developing countries around the world by training and promoting professional leadership that will advance various agendas to achieve this objective. The program is offered through the Herta and Paul Amir Faculty of Social Sciences in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Child Development and the University of Haifa International School.
Taught in English, the full-time, one-year program is designed to train the next generation of international experts who will focus on pressing questions regarding the nature of child development and how it applies to the lives of children and their families in developing countries. This unique program equips professionals with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to influence the well-being of children and their families. The program takes place from October until July. All coursework for the program should be completed during the first two semesters, while the third semester is dedicated to the supervised independent project. Students are expected to complete this project by the end of July.
Under special considerations, highly motivated and research oriented students may qualify to write a thesis. Students wishing to pursue the thesis track need to submit a research thesis within one year of completing their coursework, which may require remaining at the university for additional time after the program. A thesis is required for those students planning to continue on to doctoral studies in Israel.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive a Master of Arts in Child Development from the Herta and Paul Amir Faculty of Social Sciences.
