Semester in the City

UNH undergraduates have the opportunity to spend a semester in Boston in a rigorous 30+ hour per week internship with a leading social change organization (nonprofit, business, or public sector) – in community development, social justice, health, education, environment, and other areas dedicated to the public good.  This 16-credit Semester in the City program includes an intensive evening course that examines the theory and practice of various social change approaches, and a series of Friday seminars and reflective workshops – thereby equipping a new generation of leaders who understand both direct and systemic approaches to social and environmental change.
