The UNXP 200/Psyc 270 is a prerequisite for students to enroll in this module. In this module which runs for the second 4 weeks of the semester, students can enroll in the community-based learning course (UNXP-201). This course brings students out into the Washington, DC community to youth- and family-oriented educational settings and social service agencies. Course faculty travel with students to these placements. While on-site, students and faculty engage in direct observation and field study of children in context and under the guidance of expert professionals. Community-based learning is an innovative and immersive educational experience. The course seeks to foster students’ understanding of children’s unique health and psychological needs, and emerging social relationship structures in an up-close manner with ample opportunity for learning and reflection. This course runs for 2 class periods on Thursday mornings will a 1 class recitation section on Tuesday morning.
