Program Information

The Minor/Certificate in Advocacy and Public Engagement affirms the role of students and scholars as active citizens, community leaders, and partners in empowerment. This minor draws on the Department’s long-standing strengths in Applied Anthropology, or Public Anthropology as it is more generally known today. This sub-field encourages student activism by offering a critical, cross-cultural perspective on major public issues, and demonstrates how to effect change by drawing on political forces outside the discipline.
