Are you passionate about social and environmental change, enjoy working with groups, wish you could help connect people to services and opportunities in their community? Then the Community Development Work Program is for you!
This program will prepare you for an interdisciplinary field working with groups experiencing marginalization. You will build skills in critical thinking in matters of social justice, anti-oppressive practice, sustainable development, community engagement, community asset-mapping, fundraising, team building, collaborative leadership, project management, research and project evaluation, and much more.
Field expert guest speakers, field trips, collaborative projects with local and international NGOs attached to students learning evaluations and assessments are all components of our dynamic program of courses and learning outcomes.
Our faculty members are experienced and passionate practitioners who come from a diverse range of local and international community development settings and educational backgrounds.
Perhaps the most unique aspect of this program is how you connect theory to practice through our field placement learning opportunities. You will engage field placement opportunities/on-the job internship experiences with organizations, institutions and social enterprises actively engaged in community work.
Please Note: This program is taught using a combination of modalities. Courses may be taught face-to-face, online or in a blended/hybrid combination of both online and traditional classroom teaching.
