Centennial College’s Community Development Work program will prepare you for the interdisciplinary field that incorporates politics, economics, research and an understanding of cultural diversity.
If you are interested in this offering, you should have a strong desire to build healthy communities and make a difference in the lives of others, have excellent teamwork skills and be willing to continuously learn.
Grounded in the belief that there is no one road map to community development practice and that the community itself is “organic by nature”, this program will cover different theoretical approaches and ideas related to community development, considering ecological, social and economic constraints and possibilities.
Faculty members in this School of Community and Health Studies offering are experienced practitioners who come from a diverse range of fields. As such, you will be encouraged to practice reflexive, rigorous, critical and creative thinking that informs interpretations, processes and policies in the wider society.
