The minor in Civic and Community Engagement is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to engage as citizens and active community members in the twenty-first century. The minor is distinguished both by what students learn, and by how they learn it.
Teaching and learning. The minor introduces students from majors across the campus to the traditions and public movements of service and their historical and contemporary philosophical underpinnings. The minor provides a theoretical and empirical framework to increase students' understanding of public problems (environmental, social, and other) from multiple disciplinary perspectives. Students learn about strategies to address public problems, including through public policy; through the involvement of community-based and nonprofit organizations; and through the cultivation of leadership. The minor helps students build on their major programs of study to make connections between public problems and issues of equity and social justice.
Research. The minor increases students' knowledge of the epistemological and methodological underpinnings of community-based research as a strategy for understanding and addressing public problems.
Service. The minor helps students to ground their understanding of public problems by participating in service-learning opportunities and by reflecting critically on those experiences.
The minor is open to all UCI students. Course descriptions are available in the academic department sections of the Catalogue.

Minor in Global Sustainability

The interdisciplinary minor in Global Sustainability trains students to understand the changes that are needed for the human population to live in a sustainable relationship with the resources available on this planet.
As a result of population growth and the pursuit of higher standards of living, humanity has initiated many global trends that cannot be sustained indefinitely. Some of these trends are physicochemical in nature, such as the rapid depletion of fossil fuels and the increasing pollution of our environment, including the accumulation of ozone-depleting chemicals with consequent increase of ultraviolet radiation at the Earth's surface, and the buildup of atmospheric carbon dioxide and other molecules that are instrumental in exacerbating global warming. Other trends are biological ones including the degradation of agricultural land, the destruction of many kinds of wildlife habitat with associated high rates of species extinction, and the depletion of wildlife populations by over-exploitation. Global changes are also taking place in human societies including loss of cultural diversity, a growing income gap between rich and poor nations leading to deepening poverty and additional pressure for biological resource exploitation, accelerating urbanization with associated social problems, and regional population and economic imbalances leading to escalating political tensions and potential for conflict. This program examines the causes and interrelationships of these problems and considers new approaches to solving them. Its goal is to provide broad, interdisciplinary training that will allow students to better understand and effectively deal with the serious environmental problems that we will face in the twenty-first century.
The minor is open to all UCI students. Course descriptions are available in the academic department sections of the Catalogue. Courses in addition to those already approved for the minor (below) may be petitioned, and the list will be updated on an annual basis.

The minor in the History and Philosophy of Science is intended for students who wish to study the history of science, the philosophical foundations of scientific inquiry, and the relationship between science and other fields. The history of science explores how science is actually done and how it has influenced history. This may involve tracking down an idea's source or its influences, evaluating the cultural forces at work in the generation of a scientific theory or the reaction of culture to science, or taking a detailed look at the work of a particular scientist or movement within science. The philosophy of science is concerned with determining what science and mathematics are, accounting for their apparent successes, and resolving problems of philosophical interest that arise in the sciences. Philosophy of science courses cover such topics as the role of logic and language in science and in mathematics, scientific explanation, evidence, and probability. These courses may also cover work that has been done on the philosophical problems in specific sciencesfor example, the direction of time in physics, the model of mind in psychology, the structure of evolution theory in biology, and the implications of Gödel's incompleteness theorems for mathematics.
The minor is available to all UCI students. Course descriptions may be found in the academic department sections of the Catalogue.
Requirements for the Minor
Completion of seven courses as follows: (1) two courses selected from Logic and Philosophy of Science 31, 40, History 60; (2) two courses selected from History 135B, 135C, 135D, 135E, Philosophy 110-115 (when topic is science), Psychology 120H; and (3) three courses selected from Linguistics 141, 143, Logic and Philosophy of Science 106, 108, 140, 141A, 141B, 141C, 141D, 142, 143, 145, 146, 147.
