home about curriculum


The LSA theme year, “The Theory and Practice of Citizenship: From the Local to the Global,” is a pathway to the College curriculum. More than 130 courses related to the citizenship theme are being offered in Fall Term 2006, with additional courses scheduled for Winter Term 2007. These courses cover a wide range of social science and humanities disciplines. Several provide students with a knowledge base they can use to consider local, national and global issues and to make informed, responsible decisions regarding them. Others involve community service projects in which students can work for social justice and the common good while gaining valuable knowledge, skills and experience they can use as citizens now and in the future. These LSA courses helped place the University of Michigan in the U.S. News and World Report 2006 list for best service-learning programs in the nation.
