Community development

Take the chance to give back to your community.

Why study community development online?

Work towards your goals, whether they encompass support for human rights, sustainable development or a focus on other issues of social change. 

Use your study as a basis for work in the not-for-profit sector, consulting, project management, community projects, activism, academia, research, journalism, policy or the legal system.

Studying online means that you can build your skills at a pace that suits you- perhaps fitting in your study around existing work in the community.
