Community Based Learning

The department has partnered with community-based learning programs to offer a variety of courses through which students engage in organized service activities that address community needs while offering structured opportunities to reflect on those activities in ways that promote active learning and personal development. Our campus-community programs have offered sociology majors the chance to work with children, seniors, persons with disabilities and local farmers, as well as participate in programs designed to advocate for the poor, the environment, and victims and survivors of violence.

Courses that offer a CBL component include:

  • SOC 224. Family, Community and Globalization
  • SOC 238. Social Services, Agencies and Advocacy
  • SOC 264. What's so Bad about Aging?
  • SOC 275. Medical Sociology
  • SOC 315. Family and Relationship Violence.
