St. Thomas Aquinas College announced today the launch of its Bachelor of Arts in Social Policy & Civic Engagement (SPCE) major.
This interdisciplinary major integrates theory, real world experience, and applied practices in order to prepare students with the leadership and critical thinking skills needed to address public challenges and complex social problems.
“As demands for the jobs in the public and nonprofit sectors continue to grow – particularly in the Northeast – our program prepares students for successful careers where they will make an impact in the lives of others,” said Dr. Heath Bowen, Dean of the School of School of Arts & Social Sciences at St. Thomas Aquinas College. “This major is perfect for students with a deep investment in social justice, the value of public service, and a yearning to make a difference in the lives of others.”
The SPCE major also serves as the ideal platform for students interested in the College’s Master in Public Administration (MPA) degree. Through the Accelerated Degree Program, qualified students can take graduate level courses during their junior and senior years and with the ability to complete their BA and MPA degrees within five years.
Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2024. For more information, please contact 845-398-4100 or email@example.com.
