Welcome to the Humanitarian Assistance Program portfolio site.
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 Korbel are admitted to the Humanitarian Assistance Certificate Program each year. Admission is extremely competitive on the basis of experience, focus and motivation.
Applications for the Certificate program for the 2014-15 academic year are due April 20, 2014 at 5:00p (MST). The application form and additional information are available on this page.
