Adaptability to Community Needs and Opportunities
No matter where in the world students live, they will reap unmatchable benefits from studying with an institution that is defined by New Orleans—the city we call home. Our faculty members have helped shape the resilient, creative, activist community here, and that community has shaped them in turn. Our students are shaped by it too.
Because our online students are studying and completing their fieldwork requirement in the places where they live, they are constantly considering how New Orleans’ manifold lessons can be adapted to the problems and opportunities presented by their own settings. As a result, they are pushed to think creatively about new ways of applying crucial lessons and clinical findings, and they are equipped with tools and ideas forged in a one-of-a-kind city.
