APSY 7306 Contemporary Student Activism (Summer: 1 )
This course utilizes experiential learning techniques to explore contemporary student activism from historic foundations, present-day causes, and possible bourgeoning motivations for student protests and activism. It describes student movements in the context of the times in which they existed and where college students served as foot soldiers for activism. Student activism is explored through use of artifacts such as video footage, pictures, documents and discussion. Students in the course will work in task groups to understand and experience administrators’ roles in addressing student activism. Students will also engage in activities such as addressing scenarios, participating in role plays and other hands-on activities that enrich their understanding and practice.
