PhD Programs in Social Sciences Development Studies Community Development

If you're interested in making a real difference in people's lives, Community Development might be just the thing for you. This field is about enhancing the well-being of individuals and communities by addressing various social, economic, and environmental challenges.

During a Community Development degree program, you'll explore topics like sociology, anthropology, urban planning, economics, and policy analysis.

A degree in Community Development can lead to some truly rewarding career opportunities in both public and private sectors. Imagine working with government agencies, non-profits, or businesses to create and evaluate community development programs. Or, collaborate with architects, engineers, and policymakers to shape land-use plans and zoning regulations for sustainable growth.

With a degree in Community Development, you'll be more than ready to tackle complex social, economic, and environmental issues.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
