The online MA in Social Responsibility & Sustainable Communities degree from Western Kentucky University is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with the tools to lead communities toward social justice and sustainability. The curriculum enables students to:
Examine a range of disciplinary perspectives on social justice
Analyze the interrelationships of issues and interlocking systems associated with social organization and community development
Examine the practical and theoretical principles of sustainability and how to apply them to diverse situations and communities throughout the world
Analyze the power relationships (gender, race, age, class) that historically surround social justice and how these may be changed or augmented to increase social equality and equity
Apply the principles of community organizing and be able to effectively utilize them in a variety of communities
This program culminates in a conference-style symposium where students share their research and respond to that of their peers.
