Course Attribute:
Service Learning
Serves as a follow-up to both group projects in service-learning classes and individual field training. It is intended as a "capstone" course to help any student who has already taken an appropriate (i.e. service-related), for-credit field experience to further reflect on, integrate, and process that experience and to facilitate or improve the ongoing application of prior projects. Topics to be covered include practicalities of both voluntary and career-oriented service work, sociological and political implications of the experience, and the philosophy and social psychology of community service and civic education. The project for this class will be to follow up on the student's prior field experience (e.g. to assess its impact or plan for its improvement and/or institutionalization or dissemination).
