COMJ 160 - Foundations of Community & Justice Studies


Credits: 4
A foundational study of theories and ethics of social action, with a focus on civic engagement and citizenship. Theories of community service and ethical systems are explored as a way to understand how social action can be useful to a community as well as the problems that can arise in implementing plans. Students participate in a community engagement component, reflected upon in writing and discussion, so as to better understand how theories apply and where they may fall short. Attention is also paid to the ways in which class, race, and gender shape the processes and outcomes of social justice.

Prerequisite: First-year, sophomore or junior standing.

Distribution Requirements: CL, PD.
