CBL: Social Action

CBL: Social Action is a 1-credit course through which students integrate academic studies of a course in which they are enrolled with their semester-long community engagement/service experience in DC.

CBL: Intersections of Social Justice (summer, online, pass/fail, 1 credit)

Intersections puts the “learning” in “experiential learning.” Combining experience with sustained reflection and trans-disciplinary content, students in this online summer 1 credit course taught through the CSJ process the intersection and integration of research, learning, and service; reflection and action; the personal and the political; the local and the global; and one’s position in a community and identity as a social actor.

The Program in Education, Inquiry, and Justice (EDIJ) is a six-course minor in the Georgetown College of Arts and Sciences, which students apply to during the spring of their sophomore year. EDIJ embodies the notion that all service and action should flow from contemplation and inquiry, and adds to the lifelong development of men and women for others.
