Spring 2010 Course List for Minor in Public Praxis

Listed below are courses that count for the Minor in Public Praxis for spring 2010.  The Minor requires 6-7 courses (18-21 credits) chosen among 4 categories (see bold subtitles).  The Capping course, Public Praxis 11, is required.  Strongly recommended is the PP core course, Social Inequality (fall 2010), with Dr. Bruce Luske.  This is not an exhaustive list as other courses may offer a praxis option (see Project-keepers) and/or offer a crucial field of public knowledge.

For description of praxis-oriented, academic-based public praxis courses, see the Public Praxis brochure (see link) and Public Praxis Sites (see link) on Public Praxis website (search Public Praxis on Marist home page).
