Who It's For
If you’re drawn to this program, you probably care deeply about making a difference in the world. Many of our students are committed to a particular issue or cause already and currently work in nonprofits, government, or community groups. This is where you’ll acquire the skills and knowledge needed to create powerful social change.
- Craft your studies around what you care about most. Learning-tracks and elective options are customizable.
- Make lasting connections that go a long way. We connect students with organizations, peers, and community-based research opportunities. This fosters vital hands-on experience, fulfillment, and networking opportunities.
- Culminate with a capstone project. Students complete the program by applying and solidifying everything they've learned.
