Interested in service? Try Service-Learning!
Three hours will change your life.
Service-Learning is a form of experience-based education where students engage in service as part of their academic course work.
Freshman students have the rare opportunity to enroll in a two course sequence that allows students to stay with the same faculty member, peers and community partner for the entire academic year.
Upperclass students have the opportunity to enroll in the direct service courses, project-based courses, immersive courses and internships with local and international Service-Learning community partners.
A Service-Learning class combines academics with experience and reflection. Lectures, texts, and tests are enhanced by weekly service engaging schools and non-profit agencies that are making a difference in the Philadelphia area. Topics such as poverty, AIDS, violence, mental illness, and racism are explored both in the classroom and in the community.
Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors of all majors are eligible to register for Service-Learning classes. You must be willing to commit three hours per week to an organization that we will help you select for your class.
