Community-based experiential learning

Want to get your hands dirty? Concordia’s undergraduate curriculum contains many courses that offer students the opportunity to engage in community-based experiential learning (CBEL).

Please note that whether or not a course includes a CBEL component depends largely on who is teaching that course and the pedagogical approach they choose to use. The inclusion of a course in the inventory below indicates that this course contained CBEL during the 2015-2016 academic year, when the most recent curriculum review was completed. To find out whether a course will contain CBEL in the year ahead, please contact the professor directly and consult the syllabus.
