Interdisciplinary Minor in Community Engagement


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by Degree) and Minors

Designed to provide a foundation of knowledge and skills for participation in communities regardless of one’s primary field of study, the Interdisciplinary Minor in Community Engagement allows students to deepen and expand their understanding of communities and develop skills for principled and effective engagement. The interdisciplinary nature of the minor allows for a broad knowledge base from which to establish relationships with a range of communities both locally and globally. Students are required to take CMTYENGA 2A03  and 21 additional units from the three course lists below, selected from two or more Faculties. To ensure a mixture of theoretical and experiential courses, students must take a minimum of six units from Course List A (courses that focus on theory) and a minimum of six units from Course List B (courses that provide the student with relevant experiential learning). Students are strongly encouraged to take courses from Course List C (capstone courses that involve an advanced community engaged project). The Arts & Science Program will host the minor by managing administrative obligations such as the submission of curricular revisions. Responsibility for advising students rests with the student’s home Faculty. More information about Community Engagement can be found at http://macconnector.mcmaster.ca. Specific questions may be sent to the Director of Community Engagement at sammon@mcmaster.ca. It is the student’s responsibility to check carefully for prerequisites, co-requisites and enrollment restrictions. Students are encouraged to speak to their Faculty advisors about Faculty-specific rules on double-counting courses for the minor.
