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
