SDSU's M.S. in Community Development

Community Development deals with challenges faced by communities in the United States and other countries, particularly those in rural areas. Global economic restructuring and the devolution of government services have produced an environment in which Community Developers are called on to think and act in innovative ways.


Community Development is a progressive field, actively promoting positive social, economic, cultural and environmental change. It encourages people to see the "whole picture," engaging citizens in democratic decision making and action. As a student in the Community Development degree program, you have the opportunity to study with leading educators and researchers representing diverse fields including Community and Regional Planning, Architecture, Sociology, Native American Studies, Economics and Natural Resources.
