CAST 181B — Ethics of Community Engagement 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.

Combining theory and practice, this course supports students in the Creativity, the Arts, and Social Transformation (CAST) minor as they imagine and create a proposal for a particular project. Projects may involve local, regional, and even international collaborations, all helpful in fostering an empathetic and compassionate sense of people's and communities' situations, values, and choices. Ethical concerns must be at the forefront of the planning and implementation of all such endeavors. Usually offered every year.
