The Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP) is partnering with the Career Center at American University (AU) to provide virtual access to a host of career center services, including select professional development workshops and virtual advising for students in the Masterís of International Affairs in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) program.

The Master of Arts in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) degree, offered by the School of International Service at American University, is the centerpiece program of the Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP). The IDPP is led by the Center for Research on Collaboratories and Technology Enhanced Learning Communities (COTELCO), a joint research center at American University and Syracuse University.

  • Students can take courses from anywhere in the world, because courses are offered entirely online, and can be experienced in real time or accessed on demand

  • Anyone around the world can apply for the CIDP Masterís program

  • Faculty teach from geographically dispersed locations around the world

  • Accelerated one year or extended part time flexibility available

  • Courses incorporate Universal Design for Learning principles, and are accessible to blind, deaf, and mobility impaired students

  • IDPP's cyberinfrastructure consists of an innovative combination of virtual tools to make the program as accessible as possible

A CIDP Masterís degree empowers graduates to become global disability policy leaders. Courses teach the necessary skills for persons with disabilities to impact and influence the public policies that directly affect the disability community

The Nippon Foundation offers full fellowships for select CIDP students, with preference given to students from the ASEAN region who are blind or visually impaired; deaf or hard of hearing; and/or mobility impaired.
