UC Berkeley Ethnic Studies 197: Students can take the course for 1-3 units, with each unit representing 45 hours of service. Students enrolled in ES 197 must fulfill their hours requirements, write a final 5-7 page paper at the end of the semester that answers the following prompt: “The paper should be an honest, well-thought-out reflection of your volunteer/internship experience this semester. Please provide a brief description of JusticeCorps and the work you performed but more importantly write about what you learned from this experience, how it related to your field of study, contributed to personal growth, and related to future career goals.” Students also consent to having their midterm and/or final evaluations sent to the course coordinator. There are no formal meeting times for ES 197 and the class is pass/no pass. Typically we have 13-17 Berkeley students who get course credit for their service per semester.
