Certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation

Design monitoring and evaluation systems for organizational learning and policy development

The nature of development work — regionally, nationally or internationally — requires accountable, efficient programs that can measure the impacts of their interventions. Offered through Clark’s International Development, Community and Environment Department (IDCE), the professional Certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation ensures that current and aspiring development practitioners can take multiple perspectives, paradigms and disciplines into account when developing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating major projects, development programs and intervention strategies.

Unlike most evaluation programs, which focus exclusively on education or psychological assessment, we prepare you to work across a range of areas, including youth work, food and agriculture, refugee work, land tenure and natural resource management, education and gender.
