Spend Your Summer Studying Social Justice in South Africa
The underlying aim of civic engagement is to produce meaningful service and experience to all involved participants. In the example of service learning, this includes community partners, students and faculty. By solving real problems and addressing real needs, students learn to apply classroom learning to a real world context. At the same time, students provide valuable services to schools and communities. The service learning in Cape Town, South Africa will provide UT students the an opportunity to engage in a combination of lectures, research and service in the areas of Social Justice, Poverty and HIV/AIDS in post-apartheid South Africa.
Upon completion of the program, students will receive 6 credits in Africana Studies 491: International Civic Engaement To meet the course objectives, students will be required to blog and/or maintain a daily reflective journal to document their experience through service learning.
