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.

Fall 2018 - August 30 to September 4, 2018
Spring 2019 - January 24-29, 2019

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.
