Learning Through Comm Engmnt

Semester: 
Fall
Year: 
2015
Subject Name: 
Service Learning
Course Number: 
293
Institution: 
UMass Amherst
This course engages students in the practice of Community Service Learning, including consideration of what constitutes appropriate and effective community service, and how to learn deeply from this experience. Each time it is offered, it is organized around a topic of public concern that draws on a variety of perspectives, and it places students with community organizations in service that relates directly to the course topic. Students therefore integrate academic learning with experiential learning. In preparing for community service, students will explore the course topic, and also explore what it may mean for them in their service to cross boundaries of race, ethnicity, class, or other strands of social identity. (Gen.Ed. SB, U)
