Mini Master
of Community Development

Lead social change and transform the world

Combines the latest academic theory with practical application

You can acquire the critical thinking skills and entrepreneurial opportunities needed to make a transformational impact in people’s lives.


It takes more than good intentions to create real change in the world. It takes preparation. It takes knowledge. And it takes humility to learn from those we seek to help.

The Mini Master of Community Development will equip you to work with communities to create sustainable, community-owned and community-honoring change.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Assess the particularities of culture contexts as they are relevant to the design and implementation of community development interventions.
  • Develop lifelong, habitual practices of authentic self-assessment and personal transformation.
  • Strategize for effective program implementation and management.
  • Analyze relief and development outcomes to assess program impact.
To be awarded the Mini Master of Community Development you must satisfactorily complete all written contributions. Successful students will receive a Mini Master of Community Development. A transcript detailing the course will be issued to successful students.


The Mini Master of Community Development is delivered at AIES approved centers over the course of 6 months.
