Engaged Scholars should be interested in not only learning about how societies and cultures across the world change over time, but also understanding the social and public role of the past in the present, studying public perceptions and attitudes towards history, and connecting these theoretical and academic approaches with meaningful and respectful engagement with communities and organizations outside of Brown.
Engaged Scholars Program
Students in History--and any other concentration--can submit a declaration for the Engaged Scholarship Certificate (ESC) in ASK. The ESC allows undergraduate students to define the public, civic, and/or social justice issue on which they will focus.
- Each student will take SOC 0310: Theory and Practice of Engaged Scholarship and
- Propose a set of three experiences—a three-course interdisciplinary elective sequence, a community-based practicum, and a capstone—related to the issue they define as their focus.
There are also opportunities for students to give presentations on their engaged scholarship.
