CAST 189A — Project Design Practicum

Prerequisite: All CAST practicums are open by permission to students who have taken the core course, CAST 150b, regardless of whether they are enrolled in the minor. While only one practicum is required for the minor, any student who has taken CAST 150b can take both the fall and the spring practicums for credit. Yields half-course credit.

Each student applies theories, skills, information, and critical questions to an individual or group project that engages with social transformation concerns in creative, practical, and ethically-sound ways. Although many students undertake independent projects, this is a collaborative practicum in which all students help each other imagine and problem-solve. Usually offered every year.
