The Certificate in Civic Engagement will prepare students for careers designed to positively impact the civic well-being of their communities. This will be accomplished through a diverse array of coursework and a hands-on practicum/internship focusing on sensitizing students to the needs of the community.
The Civic Engagement certificate consists of 18 credits made up of required courses and electives and culminating in a practicum/internship of the student’s choosing in consultation with his or her advisor and the Director of the Civic Engagement Institute. Students receiving the certificate will play an important role in addressing a community need while becoming adept at the concept and practice of civic responsibility.

(a) Prerequisite and/or co-requisite required.A merger of Connecticut's 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with the student's Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current Tunxis Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page: ct.edu/ctstate/academics.
