Spring 2009 Community-Based Courses

Story posted January 16, 2009

Community-based courses take learning beyond the classroom. Students in these courses apply the knowledge and analytical skills from class to addressing real environmental, social and cultural issues in the local community. You might find them conducting interviews with community members, researching, evaluating policy options, testing soil or water samples, creating public art or preparing instructional materials and offering ecology, language and culture or other lessons to students in area public schools.
