Study Abroad in Buenos Aires — Service Learning

Service Learning

Service-Learning in Buenos Aires—ARGN 3640

This course emphasizes learning outside the classroom and reflection and critical thinking within the classroom to understand communities and social change. Community service-learning means engagement in the community and learning as the highest priority. The aim of this course is that you are able to make connections between what is learned in the classroom and what is observed outside the classroom, to test theories and research against social realities and vice versa. Fulfill your on-site service-learning through nongovernmental organizations and other community service organizations devoted to helping children and adults who do not have access to basic rights such as education, health, or a home. Learn about impoverished urban areas and the situation of immigrants from border countries and groups at high risk (women, children, seniors). Each week, you will spend an hour and a half in class and 2 to 3 hours at your placement site.

Approved for the Civic Life and Ethics core and the Global Perspectives theme
