COURSES

Each Collision-Happy Course is designed and sequenced to inspire, guide, and equip students with the skills, aptitudes and mindsets they need for a world that is increasingly more interdisciplinary, collaborative, and entrepreneurial. Deeply influenced by our Rewilding Pedagogy, which flattens the hierarchical relationship between the student and teacher, each course is complemented with out-of-the-classroom experiences, one-on-one coaching and mentoring from our ever-expanding network of alumni who are social entrepreneurs, activists, and socially-minded professionals.


DESIGNING THE LIFE OF A CHANGEMAKER

It’s been estimated that college graduates have 80,000 working hours in their career. If they desire to build a better world for themselves and future generations, their choice of career is one of their best opportunities to do so. This is our changemaker incubator, which helps students imagine their future selves as investigative journalists, B-corp founders, grassroots movement mobilizers and more.

Full Disclosure

Just four courses cannot equip a student with every skill and aptitude a changemaker needs. However, each student knows what they need (see Curriculum). And, since each course encourages them to take the initiative, they’ll just go out and get what they need without even asking.
