University of San Diego Launches Masters in Social Innovation Program

The University of San Diego has launched a new Master of Arts in Social Innovation (MASI) program in the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies. Students in the MASI program critically study the roots of social challenges and injustice and then work to create solutions to the social inequality. Areas of focus include poverty, inequality, human rights abuses and humanitarian crisis, pairing these issues with critical thinking, inventiveness, leadership and sustainable design.

The program is designed for those who think beyond present challenges to solution-based ideas. To work towards social innovation, students learn sustainable business design, leadership, communication, human-centered design and problem-solving.
