Service-learning enhanced courses are offered in all 17 of UGA’s schools/colleges. With over 300 course sections per year offered locally, at UGA’s extended campuses, online, and internationally, service-learning is available to a growing number of UGA students.
Service-learning happens in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, from First Year Odyssey Seminars to doctoral coursework.
You can find S-designated courses in the UGA Bulletin, using the "search" feature by suffix. In ATHENA, for a given semester, you can do a class search to see what is offered and by whom. To do so, highlight the course prefixes of interest then select, in the "Attribute Type," "Service Learning".
Here are links to some recent service-learning course projects:
