Specialized Study Program in Civic Education for the Digital Age

The barrage of information in the digital age, and the political ferocity in today's climate can be difficult to sort through, especially for youth. The digital revolution has transformed fundamentally important aspects of our democracy. These changes necessitate changes in civic education. If youth are to be prepared to deal with the challenges and tap into the opportunities afforded in our digital age, all youth will need access to high-quality civic media literacy education.
