Community Service Learning

Are you a nonprofit organization looking for help in developing a health communication campaign? 

Students within the Master Communication Sciences who are following the Community Service Learning course are motivated to develop and implement an intervention in cooperation with a nonprofit organization. 

Community Service Learning is an experiential learning technique in which academic knowledge is connected to voluntary work and social commitment, and personal growth. Students will assist your organization by not only providing human resources but also with academic knowledge and skills. Reflection and personal growth are key assets in this course. The course involves the development of an intervention (semester 1) and the implementation of this intervention during 40 hours of field work.
