This course teaches students to apply social theory to the real-life experience of their required STPEC internship. Students are encouraged to draw on knowledge acquired in prior Gen Ed and core STPEC courses to explore connections between theory and practice as they analyze various aspects of the organizations. Class structure and assignments promote group communication, multi-disciplinary dialogue, and critical self-reflection. Course assignments focus on a self-designed project related to the student's internship placement and include multiple peer-edited drafts of a critical analysis of the internship, a self-reflective essay, an oral presentation, and a final cumulative paper. This course, plus STPEC 498Y, satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-STPEC majors.
