Students can earn Engaged Learning credit while studying abroad. This may include:
How do I request that my study abroad course be approved for Engaged Learning?
There are many Loyola students who participate in Loyola-sponsored study abroad programs with courses that are eligible for engaged learning.
If students are planning to fulfill Engaged Learning while studying abroad, some courses for Loyola programs may be listed in LOCUS. For others, check the study abroad Course Approval Database: http://webapps.luc.edu/studyabroad/index.cfm#searchdatabase . All study abroad courses previously reviewed and approved for Civic Engagement credit under the previous Core (30 courses) have been approved for Engaged Learning credit.
Students requesting Engaged Learning credit for non-Loyola Study Abroad courses that are not in the Office for International Programs (OIP) “Course Approval Database” will follow the procedure below:
A student seeking Engaged Learning course approval will need to download the Study Abroad Course Approval Form.
The student will then submit the completed form to the Chair of the Board of Undergraduate Studies Engaged Learning Sub-Committee for review as an Engaged Learning course (via email@example.com).
The Chair of the Board of Undergraduate Studies Engaged Learning Sub-Committee will notify the student and OIP of the decision 7-10 business days following the original request.
