The Community Studies program is a diploma program, which provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to work with and for people in the community. This is a challenging and dynamic program that is based upon the principle of learning by practical application. It prepares students for challenging roles in community-based agencies and as community leaders. An emphasis is placed upon improving communities through both short-term and long-term development.
