Community Change Studies

The Community Change Studies (CCS) minor prepares students to fill the need for talented, skilled individuals to work on issues of poverty, race and community-building.

Our interdisciplinary approach offers students the tools to be critical thinkers, team builders, organizers and agents of positive, social change in a range of careers and in their lives.

Students work on local and campus issues, and explore topics such as social and political power; race, culture, class and gender; the history of social movements; and listening skills, relationship building and critical analysis.

Combine the CCS minor with any academic major offered at UM-Dearborn.

For further information about Community Change Studies, contact Program Director Dr. Lara Rusch.
