Register for a Service-Learning Course

Bring your coursework to life by taking a service-learning course! Service-learning courses integrate community service and course learning objectives. Students get out of the classroom and into the community to volunteer in a setting that uses or applies the knowledge they are learning in class. These courses allow students to relay course information to their service program in a meaningful and memorable method.

With over 50 service-learning classes offered at UW-Madison, you’re sure to find a course that fits your major or interests! Follow this link for a complete list of service-learning courses offered for Fall 2010.
