The Master of Arts Degree in Nonprofit Management (MNM) is completely online and is designed for students already working in, or interested in working in, the nonprofit sector. Students from any undergraduate background are welcome to apply.
The purpose of the M.A. in Nonprofit Management is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed for successful leadership positions in the nonprofit sector. The nonprofit sector is diverse and dynamic. The sector is growing, as is the need for well-prepared leaders capable of working across multiple environments and stakeholders. The curriculum explores issues facing nonprofit organizations and their leaders, and helps students master relevant skills, theories, and analytic tools for leading and managing effectively. Courses investigate the political, economic, legal, and social environments of nonprofit organizations, the unique role of the sector, and the importance of personal and professional development. Students develop skills in specific areas such as governance, fundraising, human resources management, financial management, grant writing, legal issues, and advocacy. Embedded in the curriculum are both theoretical and practical approaches to understanding and promoting civic engagement and participation.
The course content of the Master of Nonprofit Management program is centered upon developing socially responsible leaders who understand the important role of the nonprofit sector in promoting social justice and social change. A unique feature of the sector is that it is founded on the belief that individuals can come together to improve the conditions facing a particular community or group. Some activities for improving conditions include advocating for policy change or educating the public about particular issues. Still other activities may be the provision of services like counseling, medical care, employment training or animal rescue. The cornerstone of this program is that this unique feature should be preserved and promoted, and students will be given the opportunity to learn about civic engagement, social justice, and social responsibility. Wherever possible, real life issues and cases facing nonprofit organizations are integrated into course content.
This program will be offered completely online, and structured to be completed in less than 18-24 months. The courses will be structured for asynchronous delivery allowing for both multiple terms of entry and the ability of students to complete the program at different paces.
