A degree in Community Psychology prepares students to advocate for a community’s well-being, building collaborative relationships between individuals, groups, government agencies and non-profits. Social justice, inclusiveness, and a respect for diversity are core values in this field, as is the belief that it is preferable and more effective to use the existing social resources of a community to prevent societal problems.
