Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis announces new ba in Philanthropic Studies

IUPUI is pleased to announce a new Bachelor of Arts in Philanthropic Studies beginning Fall 2010.  Philanthropy and the nonprofit sector are becoming increasingly complex, and those who plan to work in this arena should seek a sophisticated education in the field. This new program is designed to equip students with the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to succeed in entry-level positions in philanthropy and the nonprofit sector. It will help them prepare for careers in fields as diverse as foundations, healthcare, human services, community development, education, the arts and the environment.

Students will have opportunities to interact with national nonprofit leaders, complete a capstone learning experience and participate in internships and service learning projects. They will learn firsthand from Indiana University’s Philanthropic Studies faculty members, many of whom are among the nation’s leading experts and researchers in philanthropy. The Center on Philanthropy at IUPUI has pioneered the field of Philanthropic Studies and created the world’s first Master of Arts and Ph.D. degrees in Philanthropic Studies.

Students who apply now can still be considered for IUPUI scholarships! First-year students with excellent SAT or ACT scores are eligible for annual scholarships of up to $10,000 annually for up to four years.
