Who You’ll Work With

Your advisor, along with faculty members, will work closely with you to plan a well-rounded program that fits your goals and interests. Choose your faculty based on their research interests and the way their disciplines line up with your goals.

Cutting-Edge Faculty Research

Our current program director has many years of experience and research working to solve community problems from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Two of her interdisciplinary projects are currently being published as books, and she has more than 20 scholarly publications and many conference and professional presentations to her name.

In addition, our department chair is a current member of Leadership Charlotte and runs a community organization devoted to increasing literary opportunities in underserved communities.

Valuable Community Connections

No matter what combination of courses you choose to study, your professors will be able to connect you to the right resources in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.
