Section Description

The Service Learning Internship course offers an opportunity to learn by doing. Service Learning interns complete an internship locally, nationally or internationally, and increase their understanding of social issues on a local and global level and develop skills to contribute to social change through associated reading and reflections. Students also gain transferable professional skills and explore and clarify career directions. Students may enroll for 1-12 credits, depending on hours worked and related assignments.

Section Expectation

Students participate in internship experiences with various nonprofit organizations, working between 5-40 hours per week, depending on the number of credits enrolled in. Most students work 10 hours/week, contracting for 3 credits. Students are active in an online discussion group, and meet three times in person during the semester. Excellent readings serve as a basis for student essays linking social issues to the work in the field.


The course is graded, based on satisfactory completion of the internship and written course requirements.
