WGST 338 Community-based Learning (1-4)

Community-based learning is a teaching-learning strategy that combines community service with classroom learning. The benefits of this kind of experiential learning is that, when done effectively, it greatly enhances the educational experience for students and teachers, and provides benefits for the college/university and community.  It teaches civic responsibility, the importance of strong communities, social advocacy and it promotes learning through active participation in community-based experiences. Each student enrolled in the class will complete a certain number of hours of service advocacy over the term according to the number of credit hours of the course (credit hours are variable).  Your grade will be a combination of completion of hours, agency/organization evaluation of your efforts, as well as an individual grade assigned by the professor on my assessment of your completion of assignments.
Prerequisite(s): Junior rank or higher, WGST 200 
Course Frequency: Fall and Spring
Repeatable: May be repeated for credit when course content varies.
