HD 322 - Applied Human Development


Unit(s): 4
This capstone course considers some of the essential characteristics of what we might refer to as “applied human development.” We take up four topics: 1) the politics and ethics of what it means to do applied work; 2) the challenges of applying divergent theoretical perspectives to practical problems; 3) the practical challenges of working on a specific applied project; and 4) the institutional characteristics of some of the career contexts in which human development knowledge gets applied. With these last two topics, we will engage with community partners in ways that help us to understand applied human development work.

Grading: GRD
Prerequisite(s): enrollment in or completion of HD 450 and either HD 320 or HD 321; open to Human Development Majors with senior standing only.
Teaching Mode: Course taught in face-to-face and online modes.
