Why choose philanthropic studies?
Philanthropic studies is a major designed to educate socially responsive students in the emerging field of philanthropy and nonprofit organizations in the local, national, and international arena. We define philanthropy as voluntary action for the public good. Based in the liberal arts for adventurous learners, the leading curriculum explores the historical, philosophical and economic “whys” of giving and volunteering as well as the “how to” of working within nonprofit organizations.
There are over 1.6 million nonprofits in the United States who need well-prepared leaders like you!
