Summer courses and internships provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their academic studies in a professional setting with a social focus.
The Center for Social Concerns' International Summer Service Learning Program (ISSLP) is both a four-credit course and an eight-week summer service-learning program in Catholic social tradition and social analysis which together provide a critical lens through which students are invited to interpret an array of global issues.
The Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) is a three-credit theology course (S/U) with an eight consecutive week immersion in one of over 180 sites across the country, during which students expand their education by working with and learning from persons who are marginalized in society.
Sophomore and Junior business students have the opportunity to intern for 8-10 weeks of the summer at a social enterprise organization devoted to making a positive social impact while also maintaining financial viability.
Students in this three-credit, eight-week summer course will be immersed in community-based and national organizations. They will also engage in critical study related to their service learning in a class led by an Institute for Latino Studies professor.
