Social Advocacy and Change, Certificate
The Certificate in Social Advocacy and Change is designed for students who wish to engage as active citizens, using communication skills and knowledge to promote change in a variety of social and political contexts including, but not limited to, human rights and environmental concerns. Active citizenship exists where individuals use communication practices and theories to advocate for change on their own behalf or on the behalf of others, and where groups seek to find common cause or concern with issues at the heart of the controversy. A combination of courses in communication studies and organizational communication help students learn the knowledge and skills that will allow them to create responsible change in their communities.
