Given the urgency of developing more just, sustainable, and resilient communities, the Bachelor of Arts in Sustainable Community Development is designed to give students a home for their personal vision of how to design and implement measures that create or restore communities. The program defines community as humans and all other resident life forms of local ecosystems and the habitats that support all life. Students study the physical environment of their community, the values, practices, and needs of humans who reside there, and the influences of, and access points to, relevant government and private enterprises whose activities affect the well-being of the community.
Projects done throughout the program will distill from studies and be designed to address authentic needs in the student’s chosen community. As we work to provide an innovative educational experience that is more relevant and timely than ever, Prescott College offers graduate-level curricula through accelerated master’s degrees in Resilient and Sustainable Communities and Sustainable Food Systems
