Students are introduced to the practices that support evidence-informed services in the field. Students explore today’s rapidly changing information ecosystem including a variety of sources of information ranging from scholarly literature to popular media and social networks. By learning creative inquiry, strong searching, evaluative skills and critical reflection, students learn to use and create information to support personal and professional growth and community change.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
