The minor in Public Service and Community Engagement is an innovative, intensive, interdisciplinary program open to all USF undergraduates, regardless of their major, who are interested in developing their skills and knowledge in public service. Students can select a global and/or local focus depending on their interests. Graduates of the program are honored as “McCarthy Scholars” at Commencement.
The PSCE minor provides students the analytical, organizational, and advocacy skills and preparation needed for sophisticated public service. Participation in the minor prepares students to undertake community problem solving through active citizenship.
Through experiential learning, reflection, and analysis, students gain direct exposure to some of the most pressing social issues facing the world.
