International Nongovernmental Organizations Studies (INGOS)
International non-governmental organizations (or INGOS) are nonprofit groups or associations that are independent of any government and work in more than one country. The INGOS Program at Rhode Island College introduces students to organizations including Amnesty International, the World Wildlife Fund and Doctors without Borders, and explores the many ways that these important nongovernmental organizations are shaping our world.
The INGOS Program develops students' understanding of global issues; provides exposure to career choices in the international arena and to graduate school opportunities in internationally oriented fields; promotes international travel; and facilities internships with INGOS both in New England and around the world.
The program offers two tracks: a certificate and a minor. Both tracks are open to students in all majors, including political science, modern languages, social work, business and communications.
