The master of arts in social responsibility and sustainable communities is an interdisciplinary program of study that provides students with the tools to lead communities toward social justice and sustainability. It is designed especially for students inclined toward the humanities, social sciences, and related fields.
Students take a core set of courses that provide interdisciplinary grounding in social justice and sustainability, economic and policy issues, leadership issues, community-building, and community-based research. Students may focus their elective courses on environmental sustainability, women's & gender studies, inter-generational studies, or other issues—depending on their interests, on availability of courses, and in consultation with their advisor.
The SRSC program is learning in action. As a student in this program you'll have the opportunity to conduct an action research project to understand issues relevant to social justice and sustainability and identify possible solutions. You'll also participate in a unique experiential learning program where you'll meet community members engaged in work relevant to these core principals. Your master's program will culminate in a conference style symposium where you'll share your research and learn from that of your peers and faculty.
