Critical and Creative Thinking Graduate Program, UMass Boston

Student and Community Resources

This page serves as a portal to information about courses (upcoming offerings, syllabi, past evaluations, books), to course wikis and news about alums and the CCT monthly news for the Critical and Creative Thinking graduate program at the University of Massachusetts Boston and its Science in a Changing World track (as well as the Liberal and Interdisciplinary Studies concentration).

Two different wikis, Critical, Creative and Reflective Practice and Science in a Changing World, were previously used as primary places for building communities that extend beyond the formal programs of study. Archival links to past projects are contained throughout this site now.
