Service-Learning is embedded within courses in various degree programs at Bluefield State University.

Service-Learning will occur during the fall, winter, spring, and summer sessions.

Courses that embed service learning engage students in directed projects, internships, and externships, preparing undergraduates to cultivate competence for employment in worldwide contexts.

Service-Learning provides an opportunity for students to integrate classroom learning and theory with practical experiences in a professional setting and to make contacts in various sectors. Many students may obtain employment owing to their Service-Learning expertise and contacts.

Service-Learning will be from two weeks to a month, generally during the second half of the semester.

Participating Public/Private/Nonprofit partners will provide BSU faculty and the Office of International Initiatives, Honors College, and Service-Learning an outline of responsibilities, along with workplace protocols that must be adhered to by BSU students.
