Service-Learning Information
In addition to their academic courses, students will have the opportunity to spend 5-10 hours per week at a service-learning host organization, increasing their language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Language proficiency for the placement will be determined by a phone interview before acceptance to the program.
