Community Service Learning

SFSU offers many courses that involve Community Service Learning (CSL) and the College of Liberal & Creative Arts offers a variety of courses each semester that include CSL experiences.  According to the bulletin: "Community Service Learning (CSL) is the combination of academic study with community service so that each is enhanced by the other." This allows "students to make connections between their classroom education and its appplication to the field."  One can search for such classes by entering the program offering the course and the course number and then selecting "Service Learning" in the course attribue box on the Class Schedule search.  The following courses with service learning are currently posted for the Fall 2018 semester:
