The Department of Counseling, Societal Change, and Inquiry (CSCI) houses the Counseling, Curriculum Studies, and Youth Advocacy and Educational Studies programs. These programs engages students who are looking to positively impact society in a number of ways including addressing mental health through counseling, investigating the relationships between curriculum in schools and society, and working with youth in organizations that are connected to education. Coursework in CSCI provides students with a background in educational studies that can be applied to contexts outside of the classroom, but will still have impact on schools and their surrounding communities.
