Human Science Conference Call for Prospective Students

12/07/2011

Monday, December 12th, 2011 from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST, join Dr. Joann McAllister, Chair of Saybrook's graduate program in Human Science, to learn how Human Science degrees can advance your career goals and create personal and professional growth. Unbound by limiting, rigid theories, Human Science applies a human-centered and interdisciplinary approach to explore the question; what does it mean to be human in the 21st century?

Human Science (HS) is a discipline rooted in the European scholarly tradition of qualitative theory. HS programs investigate issues that intersect between art, science and philosophy to discover how individuals and societies can improve their condition.

Graduates work in diverse fields, from urban violence prevention or community organizing to bioethics; they work with indigenous populations, provide alternative health care treatments to those in need and study alternative states of consciousness. Others evaluate the effectiveness of city and state government intervention programs, help develop effective school system educational programs, or teach in higher education.

Dr. McAllister has worked with non-profit organizations and government agencies, including the Office of the California Attorney General, conducting research and developing violence prevention and intervention programs to address intimate partner violence and the needs of at-risk youth. After discussing Human Science opportunities at Saybrook, she will lead a question and answer session with participants. To learn more and join the discussion, please RSVP HERE.
