Community Engaged Learning: For Students
Community-engaged learning (sometimes called service-learning) is a valued part of the undergraduate Duquesne education. A community-engaged learning course is exactly what it sounds like: a class that combines community engagement with classroom-engaged learning. You will gain real world experience while also helping others. The Pittsburgh region becomes a part of your classroom, as you work alongside your classmates and community members to contribute to meaningful environmental and social change. Many Duquesne alumni discover that community engaged-learning helped them further their careers, providing them with ways to demonstrate valuable professional experience.
Community-engaged learning classes listed in the online schedule of classes carry a SL (short for service-learning) designation in their section number. Learn more about changes to the graduation requirement.
