Prescott College announces new online Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing
Prescott College has announced a new Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing, with enrollments now open for the fall 2017 academic term. The program will be online and is designed to equip students with the skills, connections, and knowledge needed to participate and lead effectively in grassroots mobilization and movement building.
The announcement of this new degree program follows a historical election and comes during a time of political uncertainty. “The goal is to graduate hundreds of community organizers nationwide in the next few years to help empower communities and lead change for a more socially just and environmentally sustainable world," says Paul Burkhardt, Prescott College Provost.
The new Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing is being offered online to increase accessibility in order to support the Prescott College mission to, “educate students of diverse ages and backgrounds to understand, thrive in, and enhance our world community and environment.” While Prescott College has provided distance learning options since 1978 through a limited-residency delivery model, this is the first 100 percent online degree offered by the College. At less than $10,000 for tuition, the Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing is designed for people who are interested in making an impact in their community and the world at large.
The Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Organizing is a new program, but the concept of integrating social and environmental justice into college curriculum is nothing new at Prescott College. In addition to incorporating social and environmental justice principals into all programs at the College, there is an existing Master of Arts in Social Justice and Human Rights degree available on the Prescott College campus in Prescott, Arizona.
