Service learning generally revolves around some kind of social justice. Service learning opportunities are mainly volunteer programs, including Alternative Break programs and community service projects. We encourage our students to involve themselves in extracurricular activities, and service learning opportunities are excellent ways of giving back to the community. Service learning opportunities do not necessarily have to utilize psychology principles but students who get involved in a service learning project usually find that they are able to use many of the skills learned in psychology courses.
