Catalog Code: ISJEF1117
ISA Academic Information
Due to the time commitment of the Service-Learning placements, and the schedule of Intensive Spanish courses, Service Learning students are encouraged to select no more than one 80-hour Spanish language course and should fill their remaining schedule with electives in English or Spanish. Students may choose to add an additional intensive month program(s) to the trimester/semester program if they wish to enroll in more than one Intensive Spanish course.
In addition to their academic courses, students will have the opportunity to spend 5-10 hours per week at a host organization, increasing language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities.
Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
