Looking For An Activist Career?
Students in our master's program in Environmental Advocacy and Organizing are trained for activist careers as public interest advocates and grassroots organizers working for climate protection, ecological sustainability, social justice, and the democratic control of corporations. Our motto is “Democracy is not a spectator sport.”
Become A Social Change Leader.
Our training program focuses on five key areas: ecological literacy, big-picture political analysis, vision, and strategy; social action skills; organizational leadership; and self-renewal. Here, you will hone your ability to organize dynamic campaigns that win significant reforms, mobilize increasing numbers of citizens, and build stronger progressive organizations and coalitions.
Practice Makes Perfect
You will also get practical experience through two, 300-hour field placements, as well as our Advocacy Clinic seminars, where you will do real work for real clients, offering them research, public policy critiques and analysis, strategic planning, campaign materials, action planning, and development plans.
