Minor or Integrative Studies Concentration Only
The Community Change Studies (CCS) minor or concentration prepares students to fill the need for talented, skilled individuals to work on issues of poverty, race and community-building.
Our interdisciplinary approach offers students the tools to be critical thinkers, team builders, organizers and agents of positive, social change in a range of careers and in their lives.
Students work on local and campus issues, and explore topics such as social and political power; race, culture, class and gender; the history of social movements; and listening skills, relationship building and critical analysis.
