Service Learning

Some sociology classes incorporate optional community service projects in lieu of traditional research papers. Some examples include tutoring at an after-school program and providing child care for women who are living in a residential substance abuse program. Other service-based class projects are connected to college sponsored fall and spring break Habitat for Humanity building blitzes and the extended weekend experiences such as Urban Plunge where you work in homeless shelters in Washington DC or do home repairs for rural residents as part of Appalachian Plunge.
