Our society is presently undergoing some most rapid and widespread changes since the Industrial Revolution. Community service agencies are having to deal with reduced government funding and an aging population. These forces have resulted in new career opportunities with non-profit community organizations, businesses and institutions.

Professional training in organizational administration has never before been more important. Those who manage community agencies are finding that they require formal training and are returning to College to take courses relevant to their agencyıs needs. Students needing to work with people in a variety of institutional and community settings are enrolling in organizational administration courses to gain entry into agencies or to start their own businesses. If you enjoy working with people, helping them organize activities and accomplish their goals, this could be the training program for you. Students take a prescribed selection of courses which cover the areas of communication, service delivery, finance, planning, management, marketing, entrepreneurship and field work.

  • Students should expect that a minimum of one class each term is offered in the late afternoon or evening. This may interfere with employment opportunities, family obligations, etc. but is necessary to fit the schedules of instructors and certain students.
  • Students are advised that course availability is limited. Failing or withdrawing from courses in a given term may cause serious disruption to the student’s progress through the program. Students enrolling in a course for the first time have priority over those students repeating the course.
  • Fieldwork placements may be completed during Fall, Winter or Spring terms and may conflict with employment for students. Fieldwork may be combined with suitable summer employment, but often such assignments are voluntary. Final Fieldwork evaluations must be completed by the end of June.
