Topics for the College of Arts and Sciences, S&H

L105 is a service-learning course that develops social
responsibility, active citizenship and community engagement by
combining academic inquiry with service that meets genuine community
needs. Twenty hours of service over the course of the semester (2
hours per week over 10 weeks) in a community organization is
required. This experience offers you an in-depth understanding of the
community agency, the population the agency serves and the issues it
attempts to address. The key feature of this course that
distinguishes your involvement in the community from volunteering is
that we will frame our practical experience in an academic context;
specific topics we will consider in this context include social
justice, charity, service, advocacy, social entrepreneurship,
political democracy, education, and ideology.
