Calling all compassionate leaders

The Masters of Arts in Humanitarian Assistance (MAHA) is a rigorous academic program that prepares socially-minded leaders to address today’s challenges in the fast-paced, evolving world of humanitarian assistance. Offered in partnership with The Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, the program is for mid-career professionals looking to increase their skills and abilities in the areas of nutrition, food policy, and economic, political, and social development as they relate to aid activities in complex emergencies. 

Rooted in global humanitarian action

The MAHA is administered by the Feinstein International Center, a leading research and teaching center at Tufts University dedicated to improving humanitarian action across the globe. MAHA students work closely with the center’s faculty and researchers, studying current and past humanitarian theories, programs, and policies through engaging, interactive coursework. Graduates of the program go on to fill vital roles in aid, diplomatic, and military communities; run country-level programs for major NGOs; and manage emergency operations for different U.N. agencies.
