The Program 

Program Alumni Information

The program focuses on training researchers and practitioners. Graduates from the program are typically employed in education, consulting and/or the nonprofit and for-profit/business sectors. 

Curriculum

Our program provides flexibility for community-focused students to take up to six hours coursework outside of the department (e.g., law; criminal justice; women's gender and sexuality studies) that align with their specific area(s) of interest. All students are required to complete a capstone experience, which could include a project or internship placement. We have resources available to assist with identifying those opportunities. Several required classes also include applied projects with community partners. The program can be completed in one year.
