Kiphart Scholars Program in Global Health & Social Development

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMCentral Standard Time UTC -06:00

Information sessions are a great opportunity to see what it is like to be a master's student at the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice, and to ask questions of master's students and the admissions staff. Join Jessica Darrow and learn more about the Kiphart Scholars Program in Global Health & Social Development. 

Kiphart Scholars will embark on a rigorous course of study focused on understanding social problems, social policy, and on-the-ground practice in a globalized world. The Kiphart Scholars Program in Global Health and Social Development focuses on providing students with both a particular knowledge base (on global processes, historical trends, and comparative perspectives) as well as a set of skills (regarding intercultural awareness, self-reflection, critical assessment, project implementation, program evaluation, etc). It places particular emphasis on understanding and working with culturally diverse and economically disadvantaged populations, attention to the needs and circumstances of individuals in the context of their local environment and in light of the structures and influences that shape their conditions and opportunities at more macro levels, and an understanding of the social construction of social problems that hones students’ capacity to think critically and flexibly across contexts.
