Service Learning Practicum
This practicum offers students an opportunity to more fully engage in the course in which they are enrolled. In addition to having a hands on learning experience related to the objectives of their course, the student learns the theory behind civic engagement and community service learning. Students also learn about community development and effective ways for engaging in the community. Over the course of the semester students have time in class to reflect on what they are learning at their community based learning work site and how it directly relates to the objectives of the class. Students are required to work, on average 25 hours over the course of the semester at a non profit organization that offers work opportunities that relate directly to the objectives of the class.
