Women Changing the World (WLD 401)

[WORLD 401]This capstone course draws upon written and oral autobiography to engage students in considering their own values as well as their potential as agents of activism and change. For inspiration, students in this class read Half the Sky, Do They Hear You When You Cry, and The Penguin Atlas of Women in the World.  Students then undertake service learning projects and present them at the fall and spring WORLD Conferences.

When students complete Women Changing the World (WLD 401), they will have:

  • become aware of the ways change works and how others have created change both locally and globally;
  • examined the link between their lives, the production of social values, and the relationship of values to the world around them;
  • analyzed and understood their potential to effect change.

This course is to be taken in the last 45 credits of the student's degree.
