This is the fourth semester course for students in the Civic Scholars Program of the Gephardt Institute for Public Service. This culminating course provides students with the opportunity to integrate the Civic Scholars experience, explore civic engagement opportunites post-college, and discuss ethics and civic engagement. Through group discussions, readings, lectures, and guest speakers, students 1) understand civic engagement over the life course; 2) discuss ethics and civic engagement; and 3) develop a one-, five-, ten-, and twenty-year civic vision. This one-credit course will meet weekly for one hour during the spring semester. Students are expected to take an active role in their learning through sharing their experiences, engaging with reading material, and participating in reflection exercises. Prerequisite: L98 3202, L98 3203 and L98 4202. Civic Scholars courses do not count towards the AMCS Major and Minor.
