What Does Community Based Learning Mean for Students?

How Does a CBL Course Benefit You?

  • Students gain valuable working experiences in communities around Baltimore and beyond.
  • Make a difference for the people in communities here and abroad while earning academic credit.
  • Share the experience with other engaged students and faculty while teaching and learning with other paricipants.
  • Students can also receive special studies credit for CBL, if conducted with guidance from faculty and includes a reflective paper.

I'm Interested, Now What?

If you are interested in taking more CBL-type courses or courses with a component that teaches students about Baltimore and other communities, come check out this page frequently. We will continue to update it as listings change and as we learn about courses that engage the community. Please share this resource with your friends. Classes that have * are courses where you will actually work in the community or with community agencies AND participate in reflection activities that connect your experiences with course learning objectives.
