Description

Project Community Advanced Practicum provides students who have taken SOC 225-Project Community: Sociology in Action with an opportunity to strengthen existing relationships and deepen their engagement with their community site. This is a small, discussion-based seminar where students will be able to develop their own community-engaged project.

The readings and assignments will be tailored to allow students to develop an advanced understanding of social inequalities and avenues for change within their community site and in broader society. Students will continue to build transferable skills including critical-thinking, flexibility, and cultural humility, along with a focus on strengthening their research abilities and professional development. SOC 325 students may also provide guidance and mentoring to SOC 225 students that are working at the same community site. An emphasis is also placed on connecting their work in the community to their majors, career paths, and life goals.

Course Requirements:

Students enrolled in SOC 325 are responsible for regular attendance at the weekly class sessions, as well as consistent participation at their designated community site. Students will be asked to complete weekly readings, reflective writing assignments, and community-engaged projects.

Intended Audience:

Students MUST have already completed SOC 225 or an equivalent community-engaged course, preferably within the last year. Students will be required to submit an application and be approved by the Faculty Director in order to receive an override to enroll in the course. For more information about enrolling in SOC 325, visit the Project Community website: https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/projectcommunity/soc-325-overview/

Class Format:

Time in class is interactive, and is focused on engaging in reflection and dialogue about their community sites and related sociological issues, along with learning about community-engaged project management and research. Students will also have an opportunity to discuss their progress on their projects and to receive feedback from the Faculty Director and their fellow peers during class.
