The Global Mission Leadership initiative provides students the opportunity to obtain a Master of Social Work with a Global Mission Leadership Concentration. The GML initiative focuses on educating and empowering Christian leaders who are committed to relocate or return to a nation of the world as a catalyst for holistic community transformation. Language proficiency of the nation to which the student will relocate or return is required. Within this concentration, students will research systemic issues regarding a social injustice occurring in a nation of concern, research global best practices regarding community change, and will create a plan of intervention based on the conducted research. Global Mission Leadership students will comply with the requirements of the MSW degree plan as modified by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Garland School of Social Work. Students should contact their graduate mentor or the Director of Global Mission Leadership to obtain the GML concentration degree plan.
