In the Protest and Activism course you will explore what values and beliefs are.

This unit is an introductory course looking into society and the role of protest and activism has within it. Why do people protest? What implications does it have in generating political change? How important do you consider social movements to be in creating political change?

What is activism? What are the different types of activism used today and how has this changed over time? 

You will look at various case studies to form your own opinion on the need for both protest and activism, and how effective it is in shaping society.
