Nonprofit Management Minor

Nonprofits exist at the intersection of career and community for those who dream of changing the world. With that in mind, we designed our minor in nonprofit management to provide students from a wide variety of majors with the knowledge and insights that will lead them to successful careers in the nonprofit sector. 

In your courses, you'll learn about the many roles nonprofits play in a healthy and interconnected community, from historical perspectives to emerging trends in the nonprofit sphere. The four required courses provide you with specific knowledge on the governance, management, and operations of nonprofits in any sector. Outside the classroom, you'll participate in a semester-long internship with a local nonprofit organization and learn the ropes from experienced professionals. Throughout your studies, our program mentors will help you shape an academic path that will flow into your post-college career, and you'll learn from your classmates and colleagues in seminars throughout your internship experience.

I'm really interested in nonprofit work, and it's great that Hamline offers this minor. When I reach out to organizations like the ACLU of Minnesota to ask about internships and informational interviews, it always helps to say I'm a Hamline student."
