M.A. Concentration in Leadership Toward Racial Justice
Updated 4/17/13 - changes are effective immediately

Requirements of the Concentration

The following requirements enable students to reach the educational outcomes of the Leadership Toward Racial Justice concentration:

  • Foundational course: TR331 Antiracism Dialogue: Theory and Practice
  • Three elective courses: Elective courses may be selected from those approved for this concentration, or students may ask a faculty member to include a track in another course that would explicitly address one or more of the concentration educational outcomes. Faculty have discretion to decide that tracking is not appropriate for a given course. If the faculty member agrees, some course readings and/or assignments would be tailored to allow the course to meet a concentration elective requirement. This would be noted on the registration form. Please see the registration bulletin for courses approved for the Leadership Toward Racial Justice Concentration.
  • Thesis focus on a topic in the area of Leadership Toward Racial Justice.

Educational Outcomes of the Concentration

In addition to achieving the basic outcomes of the M.A. degree, graduate of the Leadership Toward Racial Justice concentration will

  • give students an understanding of the dynamics of racism and white privilege, especially in their systemic and institutional manifestations;
  • give students knowledge of the experience and religious traditions of at least two communities of color; and
  • enable and motivate students to be an effective agent of change for the elimination of racism in church and society.
