Nonprofit Administration Department

Julie Turner, PhD, Chair

The minor in nonprofit administration is ideal for current Lindenwood undergraduate students in any program of study who anticipate working in the nonprofit sector.

Lindenwood University is the only accredited institution of higher education in the St. Louis metropolitan area to possess both undergraduate offerings (Minor) and a Master of Arts (both traditional and online) in Nonprofit Administration. Based on extensive research and benchmarking, a solid curriculum at both academic levels has been developed based on the following six core competencies: Planning, Governance, Finance/Legal, Fund Development, Communication, Evaluation, and Historical Perspectives.


Early Access to the MA Program in Nonprofit Administration

With approval from the dean of the Plaster School of Business & Entrepreneurship and the provost, students may take up to nine semester hours at the graduate level during their senior year. These hours will count toward the MA in nonprofit administration but not toward the bachelor’s degree. A student must be enrolled in at least 12 credit hours of undergraduate classes each semester that he or she is taking MA credits under this option.
