Academic Programs

An important component of the E&H emphasis on civic engagement are two unique degree programs that help students deepen their understanding and application of citizenship, activism, and leadership.

We offer a degree program that relates directly to our unique emphasis on civic engagement – a bachelor’s degree in Civic Innovation. The program asks students to grapple with the most pressing questions of the social world and pushes them to embrace opportunities to think critically about what our obligations and responsibilities are as citizens of any place.

Civic Innovation

Civic Innovation provides an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of public life and issues, including the dynamic interplay of the natural environment, the built environment, and human culture and history in places and the role of that interplay in developing innovative solutions to civic issues and problems.
