SOC3011 Civic Engagement


This course in civic learning and engagement will prepare students for participation as responsible citizens in a pluralist and multicultural society. Both the historic underpinnings of community service in the United States and the moral and civic values that are fundamental to a democratic society will be examined. Civically responsible and socially just behavior will also be viewed through the lens of social psychology. There will be a strong component of experiential learning in this course. In addition, readings and class discussions will address concepts of the course as well as controversial issues related to civic engagement. Students will be exposed to the workings of non-profit organizations, local government, and/or public education through their research of community based organizations. Students will demonstrate civic responsibility through engagement in community-based activities that serve the common good. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Credits: 3.000
