Do you want to be more effective and employable as an agent of change for equity, inclusion, and justice? If you have training in community development, labor studies, law enforcement, criminal justice, public safety, or paralegal studies, Antioch’s Bachelor of Applied Arts in Urban Communities and Justice (BAAUCJ) is the ideal degree for you. Because we recognize the value of your prior training, the BAAUCJ accepts professional credits that other degree programs do not transfer in. Through coursework and hands-on learning, you will gain skills in community organizing, social change-making, environmental and economic sustainability, and leadership. You’ll explore how race, gender, citizenship, and age, as well as social and economic disadvantages, impact our communities.

The Bachelor of Applied Arts in Urban Communities and Justice is part of a suite of Applied Studies degrees. Each provides an opportunity for students with occupational training to apply that learning toward the completion of an interdisciplinary undergraduate degree. Students reflect on past experiences and explore a variety of disciplines while gaining the skills to work as community professionals. BAAUCJ students take courses alongside other Applied Studies and Liberal Studies students in small, diverse, and highly interactive classes.
