Community Development and Organizing - Minor

Program Overview

AUC’s broad-based liberal arts education allows you to diversify your learning with a minor or two — helping you develop skills complementary to your primary area of study and demonstrating to potential employers that you have range. 

A strong civil society is one that is engaged and participatory. The community development and organizing minor includes hands-on community-based experiences to initiate your professional development in an applied setting, where you’ll enhance your understanding of the relevance and role of community and personal empowerment in response to population needs. The practicum model is designed to provide you not only with skills and techniques, but also opportunities for inquiry, for trying and testing new ideas within collaborative relationships, and for engaging community development in new ways.
