Teaching & Training

In addition to our core academic programs, CIHE frequently designs and delivers professional development seminars and training modules for higher education administrators, leaders, policymakers, and academics.

The Center for International Higher Education is involved in the training of graduate students as an integral part of Boston College. In particular, the Center regularly hosts students from the Ph.D. program as research assistants, and, since 2017, the Center has also been responsible for delivering a M.A degree in International Higher Education (including a dual degree version with the Universidad de Gualajara in Mexico).

The Center also manages a Professional Certificate in International Higher Education. In addition, the Center actively contributes to the department’s Executive Doctorate in Higher Education and administers the “International Perspectives” track through the MA program in Higher Education.

In addition to our academic programs, CIHE runs an annual summer professional development series, designed for higher education administrators, leaders, policymakers, and academics. The professional development series comprises a series of short courses, organized online every June. We also organize a virtual workshop on innovative internationalization twice per year.
