Why study Civic and Global Leadership at Sewanee?
The Civic and Global Leadership Certificate at Sewanee offers two tracks: development and human capabilities; and community and global health. Courses in the development and human capabilities track expose you to topics such as the intersection of poverty and environmental protection, community mobilization, political institutions, and policies shaping poverty eradication. In the community and global health track, you learn about the nature and significance of health care to human life and social development. You also learn about the effects of health on the human condition and debates over how citizens get access to health care.
