Check out what our students are saying about the MA in SRSC.

This master of arts degree 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, social justice (broadly understood), gender & women’s studies, or community studies, depending on their interests and availability of courses, and in consultation with their adviser.
  • Students in the MA in Social Responsibility & Sustainable Communities will cultivate the skills and knowledge necessary to be economic, political, and social change agents for more just and sustainable communities.

Students in the SRSC master’s program learn skills in community based research that help them to understand the challenges and interconnections of social justice and sustainability and to identify possible solutions.  The master’s program culminates with a week-long residency where students explore a community in Kentucky and then share their scholarly and activist learning with peers and faculty in a conference style symposium.
