The CIVICA Engage Track is a European multi-campus, interdisciplinary bachelor experience with a focus on civic engagement. It leads to a certificate and can be taken as an elective in Semester 4-6 for students in the BSc Program in Business & Economics.

Reflective Component

The CIVICA Engage Showcase Assignment completes the CIVICA Engage Track for each participating student.

The assignment challenges students to undertake an analytical reflection of their learning experiences on the CIVICA Engage Track, through articulating their own experiences, learning points, strengths, and areas for development.

It also showcases the experiences and learning of the student, on the CIVICA Engage Track, to external audiences and stakeholders through their selected media. This should include explicit reference to a European theme or challenge.
