SC 204 Overview
This course explores social change through a hacker ethic. In other words, students will examine how to make the world a better, more connected place, through the use of social networks and other digital technology. Through both offline and online experiences, students will investigate how social and cultural groups can use technology to produce results similar to traditional activism, such as human rights, access to resources, and connecting local and global communities. In keeping with the ethic of openness, community collaboration, and the decentralization of power, part of the course content will be user-generated. This course may be used toward an advanced core certificate. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing or department consent.
