LING 56000: Service Learning in Languages & Linguistics; This course aims to introduce the student to critical reflective thinking and experiential learning that address local and global needs and foster civic responsibility. This service learning course is a multifaceted method of teaching and learning that enriches a students’ academic life and real life learning by engaging her/him in meaningful hands-on service to the community while gaining valuable knowledge and skills that integrate with course objectives.
