The course society is taking is too important to leave to the politicians and, arguably, the large corporations that have a disproportionate effect on public policy. Civic engagement is all about making sure that other voices are heard, too.
It only takes a glance at the news to realize that the globalized world is not as fair as it could be. Suffering and injustice abound. A degree in civic engagement will provide you with the tools to play a role in addressing these self-evident problems.
Coursework includes a firm foundation in ethics, political philosophy, the history of social movements, effective discourse, and cultural criticism. Most degrees will also comprise an internship placement or other practical learning project.
