“What Would Fred Rogers Do?” and Other Interdisciplinary Courses

Students in this seminar explore the “big” question, how do we make the world a better place for children? Using Fred Rogers’ life and work as the organizing theme, we examine the science and practice of creating and sustaining social change from across the disciplines of psychology, education, public health, media, and communication. Other related courses including Child Development and Children and Media.
