Open to students from any major, this 18-credit-hour minor provides students an active experiential program focused on effective and sustained community engagement. Students design a program that mixes experiences in the following areas: skills/practicum, internships/study abroad, and community-based research practicum.
Note: None of these courses can also be counted to meet the requirements for the major in Political Science.
Choose 12 hours from the following courses. Please note that most courses may be repeated for credit. Also, several 3 hour internships with different experiences are more valuable than one or two 6 hour internships–discuss this with the department internship coordinator.
NOTE: A maximum of 6 hours for any one of these internships may be counted toward the minor (if the internship is for 9 or 12 hours, it may be possible to apply the additional hours to your major-discuss this with your faculty advisor).
