‘Occupy Wall Street’ Participation To Earn Class Credit At Columbia U.

Columbia University will offer a new course for upperclassmen and grad students next semester. An Occupy Wall Street class will send students into the field and will be taught by Dr. Hannah Appel, a veteran of the Occupy movement.

The course begins next semester and will be divided between class work at Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus and fieldwork that will require students to become involved with the Occupy movement outside of the classroom.

The course will be called “Occupy the Field: Global Finance, Inequality, Social Movement” it will be run by the anthropology department.

    Huh, interesting. I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this as far as mixing education and politics, but then again Occupy doesn’t really have a clear political leaning, so perhaps it could be viewed as community service. Some Occupations are heavy on the community service aspect, but it seems to vary from city to city.

    I’m glad to see Occupy getting more support. I just…don’t know how I feel about this kind of affiliation.
