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 offered in First-Year Writing in ENGW 1114: First-Year Writing with Service-Learning, and in sections of 1102 designated Service-Learning. Service Learning is offered in Advanced Writing in the Disciplines in sections designated Service-Learning.

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.
