About Service-Learning

Service-learning (S-L) courses are a form of experiential learning at Northeastern that integrate community service and social engagement into course content.

Service-learning courses are regularly offered for ENGW 1111, ENGW 1102, and ENGW 3315.

Although the emphasis of each S-L course will vary depending on your writing instructor, these courses as a whole:

  • offer opportunities to explore and engage with the local community;
  • provide hands-on experience to complement and motivate your practice of writing;
  • place you in a class with other students who are interested in volunteering, activism, and/or community engagement.
