Linked Credits

Linked-Credits are one credit experiences linked to a host course, involving work in an area that is tied to the classroom experience. Linked-Credits provide connected learning opportunities in areas that support the mission of the College and that often tie into the work of various Centers at the College.

There are four possible Linked Credit options:

Service-Learning (SVL)
For this credit, students do 15 to 20 hours of service learning with an agency off campus, coupled with reflection on the social justice issues related to the service agency.

Examples of work that students might do include being a tutor for America Reads, America Counts, or ACES Early College Awareness Program, helping build trails through a nature preserve, being a peer mentor in a local recreation program, or developing a website or planning an event for a non-profit agency.

Social Justice Activism (SJA)
For this credit, students participate in activities specifically aimed at promoting social justice and which act to address issues of justice by raising awareness or advocating for change.

Examples of work that students might do include petitioning, lobbying, participating in or organizing a march or protest, or doing voter education/registration.

Research Across the Curriculum (RAC)
For this credit, students conduct a research project that extends an area of study in the host course.
Examples of work that students might do include completing a content analysis of a particular aspect of the media, surveying and analyzing student opinions on a political issue, or conducting an experiment on social behavior.

Intergenerational Studies (IGS)
For this credit, students design and complete a project that compares some aspect of thought or behavior across individuals of different ages.

Examples of work that students might do include writing an in-depth paper on parenting practices or work habits across different generations, gathering narratives of children's and adolescents' best friends, or examining changes in an artist's work across his/her lifetime.
