Citizenship and scholarship are inextricably connected in the context of the liberal arts.  The certificate program uses an intentionally interdisciplinary lens to make sense of social issues, and weaves applied scholarship and meaningful service together to advance the collaborative skills of students and to promote the well-being of communities near and far.

Why study Civic and Global Leadership at Sewanee?

The Certificate in Civic and Global Leadership offers two tracks: development and human capabilities; and community and global health. Courses in the development and human capabilities track expose students to topics such as poverty, gender inequalities, and environmental injustice, as well as the ways that community mobilization, political institutions, and policies have addressed those challenges. In the community and global health track, students learn about the nature and significance of health care for human life and social development. Students also are exposed to the effects of health on the human condition and debates over how citizens may access health care.
