CMST 350 - Critical Engagement in Context

Fall or Spring (4) Staff

This course will survey a range of critical theories and perspectives about civic engagement, including but not limited to philosophies of citizenship, organizational structure and efficacy, social justice and inequality, social movements, and others. Students will be encouraged to use an interdisciplinary lens for understanding principles and practices of civic engagement in this course, delving more deeply in areas of faculty expertise but covering a range of theoretical and critical perspectives that “complicate” notions of identity, community, and effective engagement depending on social, economic, and global contexts of participation for example.
