Community Studies

Community Studies Program

I currently serve as the inaugural William and Mary Professor of Community Studies. The Professorship is sponsored by funding from the Mellon foundation and provides funding for the initiation and sustenance of a community based teaching and research agenda.Click here for the Community Studies program website and to download class and minor application forms.

Community Studies
Advisory Committee:  Monica Griffin (Director, Sharpe Community Scholars Program, Sociology); Joel Schwartz (Director, Charles Center, Government); Anne Charity Hudley (William and Mary Professor for Community Studies, English/Linguistics).
The minor in Community Studies, administered through the Charles Center for Honors and Interdisciplinary Studies, offers students a structured opportunity to integrate community-based research and community engagement activities with academic courses.  The Community Studies Minor is designed to augment and complement academic concentration in any discipline at the College, starting possibly from a student’s first year and continuing through their senior year at William and Mary.  Community Studies students are required to design an academic path of study that meaningfully integrates continuing community-based research and engagement with their course work and leads to the fulfillment of their plan with a capstone research experience or Honors thesis.
Students wishing to pursue a minor in Community Studies must meet with a member of the Advisory Committee to declare the minor after they have taken the introductory course (either a Sharpe freshman seminar or CMST 250) but before they have taken a second CSMT course.
