One-Year Accelerated Track

The one-year accelerated track is an intensive, 12-month program designed for students with three to four years of previous professional experience in the development sector or a related field. Students pursue the same first-year curriculum as all other SID students. During the following summer, students complete a research paper or an internship and consultant’s report. The program culminates with an in-person or remote presentation of the student’s work. Students who meet all credit requirements, submit the required master’s paper or consultant’s report, and participate in the Capstone event graduate in August after completing the 12-month program.
