The post-BA Certificate in Applied Community Psychology program is designed for individuals employed in a range of advocacy and/or human services fields who wish to improve their skills and increase their career options. It also provides excellent opportunities to recent university graduates in the social and behavioral sciences who are interested in entering community intervention work, deepening their understanding of community life as they develop practical skills for facilitating community and social change.
Faculty members have extensive experience working in urban and culturally diverse communities. Classes are lively, informal, and small, offering students from varied life backgrounds opportunities to work closely on real-world community issues. Students are introduced to theories that are then applied to community-based course assignments and projects.
