Community-Based Learning courses are offered every year at Hopkins. Registering in a CBL course will not only allow you to learn about our Baltimore Community, but will also provide you with valuable work and academic experiences. During CBL, students will learn with their classmates, engage in the community, while sharing your experiences with other engaged students and faculty.
Are you ready to take that next step during your journey at Hopkins? If so, consider registering in a CBL course this upcoming semester. View the course listings below.
Benefits of Taking a CBL Course:
- Make a difference in our community and abroad while earning academic credit
- Students can also receive special studies credit for CBL, if conducted with guidance from faculty and includes a reflective paper
- Enhance civic engagement skills, behaviors, and knowledge
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, make sure you register during class registration.
