About the Program
The Civic and Community Engagement minor is designed for students who want to apply what they learn at CSUN toward making positive changes in their communities and the world. The minor provides skills for students to successfully integrate their academic and professional interests with their desire to create healthy, humane, successful and sustainable communities. Students will combine their CSUN coursework and collaborations with community partners to become informed and active members and leaders in society.
Students should plan their courses for the minor in coordination with the Civic and Community Engagement director. Some elements of the minor require the director’s approval. Contact the director to schedule an appointment.
Students who complete the Civic and Community Engagement minor will have at least two significant experiences with community service, fieldwork, or internships with community-based, nonprofit, or government organizations. Such experiences can help students make important contacts in their chosen professions, and students can develop important skills for collaborating respectfully and responsibly with others.
