Understanding Communities: Theory & Practice
Dr Kankana Mukhopadhyay
Ms Angie Tan

This module helps students to critically understand the unmet needs and issues of marginalised communities (e.g. the elderly and the disabled). It does this by providing students with opportunities to actively engage with a selected community, and to study its challenges in-depth. Students will be equipped with the basic concepts and skills of research and evaluation to study the community’s programmes and policies. They will apply the knowledge they acquire in the classroom to real-world situations through group projects and collaborations with a community partner.


We would like to encourage everyone who enjoyed using CAPTMods to contribute back to the community by writing reviews for modules that you have taken before. Your efforts will go a long way in building up a vibrant and rich CAPT academic environment!

Please note:

1. Because the experience of each module will differ according to the professor teaching the module, at the start of your review, please state the semester taken and the name of the professor who taught the module in that semester.

2. Other students will read your review to get an idea of what taking the module will be like and this may affect their ModReg choices. As such, please maintain objectivity when leaving your review and take note that we will go through a moderation process before reviews get posted.

3. The experiences alleged in these reviews have not been verified by CAPT or CAPTMods. Please take all anecdotes with a grain of salt.
