Service Learning in Sociology
Application of student-initiated advocacy, contribution, volunteerism, and service in a community setting. Emphasis on the transferal of theoretical knowledge from the classroom to the community by creating an opportunity to examine social/community issues as social constructs in a consumer/self-advocacy focused process. Course work includes research, communication, and critical thinking and intervention skills in a community based service learning project. The course allows students to aid community stakeholders in defining and/or clarifying a community issue and creating a sustainable project to help address the issue in their role as social advocates.
