Courses

Service-Learning Courses

Service-learning courses are designed to integrate community-engaged experiences with academic course content, while providing benefit to our community partners. Essential elements of the courses include twenty or more hours of service activities, critical reflection on the relationship between course content and service experience, and an emphasis on the ethical and civic dimensions of service.

Community-Engaged Learning Courses

These courses include a variety of interactions in the community, and although community-based learning courses do not offer the sustained service component that Service-Learning courses do, they offer enriching aspects of working in the community and opportunity for critical reflection on ethical service experiences.

Community-Based Language Courses

These courses integrate academic language learning with local community, offering Duke language students opportunities to interact with community members who both speak the language and can share the culture. Community-based language courses include Arabic, French, Spanish, Chinese, Persian, Haitian Creole, and more.
