If you are interested in changing your community for the better, you may want to consider a minor in civic engagement. Through the minor you will be able to develop a combination of knowledge, skills, and values that will allow you to promote socially responsible daily behavior; community and economic development; community service; and grass-roots activity and advocacy that will benefit you and those around you.
Most specifically, our Civic Engagement Minor will enable you to:
- Know and understand multiple perspectives on the role of citizens and civic engagement in a democratic society
- Know the variety of forms of civic engagement and have the ability to assess the efficacy of different approaches and strategies
- Know critical, social, cultural, political and historical dynamics that underlie the practice of civic engagement from a U.S. and/or global perspective
- Be able to integrate theory and experience
The minor requires 20 credits of course work.
