Service Learning Opportunities
Students in the Health Sciences become involved in the community in many different courses and are required to complete a 3 credit hour service-learning experience; however, students can take up to 6 credit hours for these courses (HSC-A 291: Service Learning in Health Sciences I or HSC-A 491: Service Learning in Health Sciences II). For more information on those classes, please view the Academic Bulletin. To view a quick video describing the courses, visit this link.
These courses are open to all students in all tracks and majors. Students work with faculty members to identify community partners to complete their required hours to gain real-life, hands-on experiences to explore various professions or in their desired field.
