Co-curricular Learning

Study Abroad

Belmont students are encouraged to enhance their learning experience by spending a semester or a year abroad in an intensive language or interdisciplinary program. Belmont is a member of the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad, which allows our students access to study programs in Australia, Barbados, Belize, England,Ghana, Ireland, Kenya, Scotland and Singapore. 

Service Learning

In service learning courses, students get their minds and hands around the material by applying it to the real world. It is important to note that service learning goes beyond volunteer work.Through the combination of reading and instruction, deep reflection, and application, you'll benefit just as much as the community you serve. In the process, you'll see theory and practice come together in a way that will make your learning meaningful to you and to others.

Peer Tutoring

The Peer Tutoring Program provides students the opportunity to serve as a link between the professor and students in the class.

Speech & Debate Team

Forensics is public oratory in a competitive format. Students prepare speeches in various categories (e.g., poetry, prose,debate, persuasion, etc.) and travel to tournaments where they compete with six other speakers in 3 to 4 rounds of competition.
