The minor in Community Development provides students with theoretical and practical knowledge that enhances their understanding and vision of a strong civil society, one that is engaged and participatory. The required curriculum includes hands-on community-based learning experiences to initiate the students’ professional development in an applied setting. Students learn about the relevance and role of community and personal empowerment in response to population needs. The practicum model is designed with a broad educative focus meant to provide students not only with skills and techniques, but also opportunities for inquiry, for trying and testing new ideas within collaborative relationships, and for engaging community development in new ways.

A limited number of students are accepted into the Community Development minor. Students must have completed ANTH 202 or PSYC 201 or SOC 201 and meet requirements, including the GPA, as determined by the department to declare a minor. Academic Advising will be provided to minors through the Anthropology, Sociology and Psychology units.

Course requirements: 15 credits, including the following:
