Social Concerns Seminars

Social Concerns Seminars

Social concerns seminars are academic courses that create opportunities for students to engage in social analysis, encounter community partners around the country, and reflect on their experience and its impact on individuals and communities. Most seminars include an immersion component which takes place during fall, winter, or spring break and require students to travel to different locations to address social concerns topics in context.

Students examine social issues from various perspectives, read relevant texts, study the role of Catholic social tradition, share in the life of the communities they work with, and participate in creating active learning communities during the entire course of the seminar. 

The application for Social Concerns Seminars is open to all students regardless of class year and prior coursework.

Saint Mary's College and Holy Cross College students are welcome! If you are new to Social concerns seminars, please contact us at seminars@nd.edu for information about application and registration.

The Fall 2020 Seminars Application is now closed. Please direct questions about participation in CSC Seminars to seminars@nd.edu.
