A Hunger Informed Career
Master of Arts in Theology, Ecology, & Food Justice
The Theology, Ecology, and Food Justice Program educates students, ministers, and practitioners to tend to communities in holistic, restorative, and sustainable ways. Throughout their coursework, students examine the complex and interrelated challenges posed by poverty, ecological degradation, and food insecurity through theological, biblical, and interdisciplinary studies. This program prepares students for work in congregational ministry, nonprofits, government agencies, and the public sector.

AmeriCorps VISTA Program
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service to America) is a national service program designed to assist organizations and communities in the alleviation of poverty. Since its inception, the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty has included VISTA members in almost every aspect of our work. The Baylor Collaborative's VISTA alumni have gone on to serve in roles with non-profits, government agencies, faith-based organizations, and in the private sector, using their experience to bring a unique perspective into their various fields.
The VISTA program is ideal for recent college graduates, retirees, and mid-career professionals looking to devote a year of their lives in volunteer service to their communities.
