Social Justice Community Placement
1.0 Credit

The community placement is an opportunity for students to apply theoretical ideas about social and environmental justice and engaged scholarship in a community setting. The course is founded on the dual pillars of providing a community service learning opportunity for the students while ensuring that the community organization benefits from the placement. The 160 hour community placement is expected to either inform the major research project or be directly tied to the project.
