Minor in Urban Civic Education

The Urban Civic Education Minor (15 units) prepares students to become change agents working to address community issues. This interdisciplinary minor is available to all students in any academic discipline and is an excellent complement for students pursuing careers in education, psychology, criminal justice, social services, international affairs, and community advocacy. Service-learning is emphasized throughout the program as a way to link Urban, Civic, & Education studies with community experiences to explore the structures, processes, and issues of diverse urban cultural communities and the impact these have on the communities’ children.
