The Future Generations Graduate School (www.future.edu), a 501(c)3 non-profit institution of higher education, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association (www.ncahlc.org, ph: 800-621-7440).
Founded in 2003, the Future Generations Graduate School offers a two-year Master's Degree in Applied Community Change with concentrations in conservation and peacebuilding. As the educational arm of Future Generations (www.future.org), the Graduate School also supports multi-year research initiatives in community-based approaches to conservation and peacebuilding.
Dedicated to training students from diverse backgrounds, the Graduate School has trained community leaders from 33 countries and graduated four classes of students.
This Master’s Degree builds the skills and capacity of mid-career community leaders. Instead of relocating to a campus, students remain in their own countries and continue serving their communities throughout the two-year program.
The program blends three instructional modes: on-site field residentials for one month each term, online learning, and an applied practicum (thesis) project in each student’s community.
