Community & Social Change seeks to prepare globally aware leaders, researchers, and agents of change who create, inspire, and engage community organizations to foster well-being in diverse community settings.
The community and social change program title has many layers that peel back to reveal the broad range of knowledge and experiences our students study. But, what is at it’s core? Communities are our office; the curriculum encourages students to engage and critique the complex systems influencing communities, and act in a manner that best acknowledges and addresses needs. Social change is our goal; combining theory, research, and action, the program encourages students to seize opportunities to create a transformative impact that last. In the Community and Social Change Master’s Program, what we do here is anything but ambiguous— we are simply trying to change the world.
