Course of Study
Curriculum that aims to prepare students to facilitate positive social change.
Transformative Leadership is designed as a 36-unit online master's program. Students meet in person twice a year in the Bay Area for a six-day residential intensive and complete the remainder of the coursework online.
Because intensives are an essential aspect of the learning experience, participation in the intensives is mandatory.

During their course of study, students will select a site where they will implement a leadership capstone project that reflects their learning and insights as they go through the Transformative Leadership program. The action site may involve a working group, an organization, a community, a classroom, a family group, or any aggregate of people engaged in a system of relationships.
