Humanitarian Relief & Development

Develop a theology of compassion as you learn how to thoughtfully respond to issues of diversity, community development, crisis intervention, and disaster response.

Our innovative program, offered through the Center for Compassion, educates and equips students to deliver and lead compassion-based care that elevates and empowers the lives of the impoverished, hungry, and hurting. The program provides practical training to prepare you to deliver humanitarian care based on a foundation of God’s compassion and to apply biblical theology to the practice of humanitarian care.

You will learn how to be effective in a variety of domestic and international settings, including nonprofit leadership, volunteerism, disaster response, holistic self-care, community development, public policy, partnership cultivation, and advocacy. Our experienced professors will provide guidance and mentorship as you discover your calling.

A capstone internship with a non-profit organization specializing in community relief and/or development will provide real-world experience and training. Combine your passion for a helping profession with your faith as you pursue career opportunities.
