Courses and Internships

A number of "service-learning" courses and internships have been offered in the College curriculum. In recent years, for example, a Freshman Honors Seminar, "The University and the Community: From Principles to Practice," integrated service with the learning process, as students volunteered and studied in communities in Manhattan. Other departments and programs that have offered courses or internships relevant to community service include Metropolitan Studies (here and in London), Politics, Psychology, and Sociology. Through a new internship course, students also have the opportunity to integrate community service with the learning process while studying abroad at NYU in Florence.
