Spanish Community-Based Learning

Students who are interested in using Spanish skills and developing intercultural competence can participate in community­-based learning (CBL) in a variety of local, national, and international options. 

Community-Based Course Guide

The Center for Social Concerns offers the following kinds of community-based courses:

Experiential Learning (EL) classes put students in direct contact with some aspect of the issues being studied in their coursework. The off-campus area offers sites for learning, but students don't necessarily engage in service.

Community-Based Learning (CBL) courses give students the opportunity to contribute to the community beyond the campus. Their experiences are integrated into class like a reading assignment, providing them with an additional text for consideration during class discussions and in written assignments.

Community-Based Research (CBR) involves students in an investigation of a question of concern to a non-profit community organization. The results of the study are intended to assist the organization.

Summer Courses and Internships

Summer courses and internships provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their academic studies in a professional setting with a social focus.
