The Workshop in Development Practice is a course for second-year Master’s degree students in the Economic and Political Development (EPD) Concentration at SIPA, and for a limited number of students in other SIPA concentrations. Through the workshop, students gain practical experience while assisting a diverse range of clients on a variety of assignments related to international development. Working in teams with a faculty advisor, students take a multidisciplinary approach to their work and learn extensively from each other as well as from the hands-on tasks of the workshop itself. A key strength of the workshop is that it encourages students to explore the intersection of development concerns with human rights, corporate social responsibility, humanitarian affairs, conflict resolution, education, public health, gender, environmental policy, entrepreneurship and private sector development, and traditional and new media. Most workshop projects also involve in-country field work over SIPA’s winter and/or spring breaks, which enables teams to visit project areas and engage with key stakeholders on the ground. The workshop is coordinated by the EPD Concentration.
