Social Innovation

The Social Innovation Major prepares Rollins students with the interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to address social problems in creative, systematic, and sustainable ways.

About the Major

Skills highlighted in the SI major include human-centered design thinking (HCDT); critical analysis of social problems; data collection and analysis; impact assessment; creative problem-solving; public communication; organizational skills; empathy and emotional resiliency.

Students complete ten courses from at least three different disciplines, including four core courses: an introductory course; a core skills course; a topics course examining a wide range of social problems; and an independent capstone experience. Students must complete at least one CE-designated course. The Social Innovation major also includes an extensive experiential learning requirement. Students participate in three activities, selected from a range of approved options that involve applied and immersive learning with communities external to Rollins.
