Master of Arts in Community and Economic Development
The Master of Arts in Community and Economic Development program incorporates two distinct, yet related, bodies of theory and practice. One addresses economic development and the other addresses the larger area of community development. This program stresses the importance of linking these two concepts in a model that integrates the development of social capital and community capacity with the economic development of the community. After a broad examination of the public policy process, students will examine theoretical development concepts, as well as approached that real communities have used in an effort to produce positive economic outcomes, as well as improvement in the quality of life of their members. This master's degree program culminates with a final project that provides the opportunity to examine a community development problem or issue in an in-depth manner.
