Change in course description to:
Topics and partnerships with community agencies may vary from semester to semester. However, every semester students will have an opportunity to learn about some topic(s) in psychology, e.g., boys' development, girls' development, aging, mental illness, etc. and apply those concepts in work with a community partner. In regular class meetings students will read professional literature on the topic, reflect on that work in writing, discussions, media analyses and in other ways. In additional out-of-class experiences, students will engage in community service of some kind using what they have learned in class to inform the service work. Students will be active learners, and they will be encouraged to reflect on and evaluate the service work that they and their community partners do. The course may be repeated twice for a maximum of nine credits, though only the first three credits will count toward the psychology major.
