EDUC 300 Community Engagement in Education

This seminar will provide students with an opportunity to gain field experiences in an educational setting in urban Los Angeles. Students will select either a public school, a community-based organization, or a policy-making group as a site in which to develop a field-based research project. Regular meetings of this seminar will guide students as they spend the semester in a carefully crafted and mutually agreed upon "internship/fieldwork" experience that will culminate in a semester-end project report that addresses an educational issue of import to the fieldwork site. May be repeated for credit.
