In January 2008, SREU established the master’s programme with \assistance from USAID-funded University Support and Workforce Development Programme (USWDP) and technical expertise provided by the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

“As leaders, teachers and educators, these new graduates shoulder an awesome responsibility. It will fall to them to guide the next generation of Afghans.

SREU Chancellor Zabiullah Assadi said: “The Master of Education degree built the skills and knowledge of public university faculty from Kabul and provinces to better teach the next generation of Afghanistan...”

USAID and USWDP are working with 11 public universities across Afghanistan to develop programmes that provide market-based skills and knowledge.
