International Diploma in Operational Humanitarian Assistance (IDOHA)
 8 Credits  

The IDOHA consists of three required courses and one elective course. The IDOHA module is designed to deepen the understanding of humanitarian operations and explore theoretical and practical implications of the evolving humanitarian institutional environment.

The elective course allows students to choose a specialized area for more detailed knowledge of a specific subject. Each course in the module
includes a lecture on research methods so that students are introduced to practices used by different fields.

Upon completion of this module, students should be able to choose a thesis topic and identify the committee for their project.
