The Master of
Nonprofit Leadership program at Seattle University was one of the first
graduate degrees in the country developed specifically for those who lead, or
aspire to lead, nonprofit organizations. Today, the curriculum emphasizes the
latest in leadership and management theory and the practical skills and dexterity
required of nonprofit leaders. Students work with a distinguished mix of
Seattle University faculty and practitioner instructors, learn with a cohort of
peers, and build their networks among nonprofit and philanthropic leaders in
This 45-credit degree
combines 36 credits of core coursework completed with a cohort, and 9 credits
of electives. The program can be completed in 22 months.
Designed for working
professionals, the program schedules courses in the evenings or on Saturdays.
Students are provided with class schedules in advance to facilitate planning.
Course work is
dynamic, and builds on the diverse professional experiences that students bring
with them to the classroom. Students participate in a 3-credit practicum, which
places them in local nonprofit organizations and allows them to immediately
apply their classroom learning to real world situations. Applicants with
extensive leadership and managerial experience may petition to replace the
practicum with an elective course.
The program culminates
in the Capstone Project, a synthesis of focused academic study and the results
of the community practicum experience.
Personal mentoring is
also provided by professionals currently working in the field. Graduates have
access to career counseling services and are invited to continue their
association with the network of over 330 alumni.
