Undergraduate Courses

As part of the Pandemic Narratives project, we have created an array of options for  undergraduate student engagement  through enrolling in internships and other credit-bearing courses.  We've had some great work done in the fall that we hope to continue into the spring, including blogging and podcasting.  We continue to work with WUSB and other campus groups to build on existing initiatives as well as to start some of our own.   We welcome students looking for interesting experiential learning opportunities.
