Service Learning

All UW-Eau Claire students will complete 30 hours of service-learning before graduation. A service-learning project is a great way to explore your interests related to psychology and/or other areas of study.

A relatively small proportion of psychology majors fulfill this requirement via classes for their major and/or minor. Health Psychology (Psyc 353) fulfills 15 service-learning hours. Enrollment in Psyc 480 and 481 (Internship in Applied Behavior Analysis) fulfills all 30 service-learning hours.

The Non-Credit Option

Most psychology majors fulfill this requirement by selecting and volunteering for a program/organization of your choice. The Center for Service-Learning has information on a multitude of established programs in the Eau Claire area that are in need of volunteers.

Self-Designed Projects

You are also welcome to develop a unique service-learning project of your own. Such student-generated projects have served recipients locally, nationally, and internationally. Talk with a faculty advisor about your interests and don't hesitate to seek guidance from the Service-Learning staff.

Before starting in on any project, see the Center for Service Learning homepage for information and instructions on how to get your project approved.
