Penn State Behrend offers the innovative Intercollege Penn State Minor in Civic and Community Engagement (CIVCM) to students in any major. The minor encourages students to move beyond traditional classroom work to creatively explore relevant community issues through research and service.
Why pursue a minor in Civic and Community Engagement?
In the CIVCM minor students develop the skills and creativity to solve problems in the local and global communities. Through hands-on engagement, research, and other projects, students apply what they learn in the classroom to real-life problems and issues. Students in this minor have opportunities to serve their communities, explore new areas of interest, and deepen their knowledge of social and political issues.
Requirements: 18 credits
More information on the Civic and Community Engagement minor and academic requirements can be found in the University Bulletin, by visiting the Penn State Learning page.
