Practicum in Service Learning
Credit Hours:
1-3 hours. Repeatable for maximum 6 hours credit.

Practical use of language skills and cultural awareness through community involvement. Students will work directly with approved study abroad providers or the Latino community of Athens in planned and systematic activities coordinated with a variety of community organizations. Each student will organize, manage, and track his/her community service.

Nontraditional Format:

Students enroll in the credit hours they need (one, two, or three). They are required to attend 1 hour of class per week (15 total) in addition to service in the community for an additional 15 hours (1 credit), 30 hours (2 credits), or 45 hours (3 credits). Only three hours of credit taken during the same semester will count for the Spanish or Romance Languages minor or major (the course can only be counted toward the major or minor if the three hours are all taken at once during the same semester). Course includes a service-learning project during the semester that either employs skills or knowledge learned in the course or teaches new skills or knowledge related to course objectives. Students will work on a comprehensive project(s) and may be required to spend considerable time outside the classroom. Students will be engaged in the service- learning component for approximately 50-75% of overall instructional time.

Offered every year.

Prerequisite or Corequisite:
