CCSSC 386: A Multicultural History of Washington, D.C., 1930-2000
The Washington, D.C. setting offers students an opportunity to examine the history of race and ethnicity in a specific urban context. The history of African-Americans and their ongoing influence on D.C. neighborhoods and political movements will be explored in this course, as will the more modern influences of a number of immigrant communities including Latinos and Asians.

HIST 385: From Monuments to Murals: Exploring Social Issues Through D.C.’s Public Art
Students attend and review museum exhibits, plays and concerts. Guest lecturers provide guided tours of public art in Washington, D.C. Reading and writing assignments focus on the relationship between art, Washington, D.C.’s social history, and contemporary issues.

WCSC 485: Servant Leadership
How are leaders made? In these critical times, what kinds of leaders does our society need? How is leadership best practiced? College students, at the cusp of adulthood in American society stand at many crossroads. Life-altering decisions, vocational choices, questions about how and whom to serve can stimulate or, conversely, inhibit creativity, a willingness to engage in the serious issues of our day, and a commitment to serve others. This course will be taught in tandem with WCSC 285 Internship Theory and Practice, and explores the many dimensions of servant leadership, starting first with traditional definitions and moving into frameworks of gender and race before engaging with the great non-violent servant leaders of the twentieth century. Throughout the class we will talk with local servant leaders in the DC area.

WCSC 285: Internship Theory and Practice
Through readings, analytical reflection, journals, and guest speakers, students will explore multiple dimensions of service internships in Washington, D.C.
