Students pursuing the HUBI degree understand the value of service learning—and the Human Biology Program recognizes its importance, too. Service Learning opportunities enable you to interact with people from many backgrounds, further developing your leadership skills. It’s a rich and meaningful component of undergraduate education.
The concept is a simple one: students provide helpful service at a community agency that is directly connected to their academic coursework while the community agency provides a real-world educational setting for the students. Service Learning provides students with a broader and deeper understanding of the course content, fosters their sense of civic engagement, and sharpens their insights into themselves and their place in the community.
