Global Social Change (edX)
Learn how everyday people in China, Bangladesh, Mexico, and the U.S. transform the world around them and advocate for social change. What possibilities exist for a fairer world? Can one person truly make a difference? In this social sciences course, we sample the possibilities and limits of social change in an interconnected, inequitable global landscape.
