Soc Innovation Social Change

From Social Innovation to Social Change
In this course we will study what spurs social innovation and produces change. Our inquiry into the world of changemaking will entail theoretical and conceptual exploration, studying cases of social innovation around the world, and personal introspection. Theories from a variety of disciplines such as economics, political science, psychology, and sociology will frame our understanding of social change. Concepts examined include social problems, social innovation, social enterprise, and social impact. By the end of this course, students will understand what social innovation and social impact require. This course is primarily intended for students participating in the Social Entrepreneurship Fellowship program. Open to others by approval (approval only) 3 hrs. sem.
