About the Program

This interdisciplinary master’s program is designed to prepare students to address current issues through social and behavioral change by gaining an in-depth understanding of the different methodologies needed to communicate problems and facilitate change within global and local communities. Students may customize their curriculum to study community development, global health, media advocacy, environment and food sustainability.
