Program Overview

Program Description:
The program takes a holistic, interdisciplinary view of academic topics, drawing not only on articles and faculty lectures, but also student observations, guest lectures, and homestay interviews to facilitate learning. Assignments typically involve written essays, oral presentations, and more creative projects such as posters and photo stories.
A major portion of the curriculum will be based on field trips, interviews, and guest lectures. The field trips and interviews must be structured around the core themes of the curriculum as laid out in the four classes. In addition to classroom time and field trips, students will have time to reflect on and write about their learning and experiences on the program. At the end of the program, students will produce a cumulative project involving data collection and qualitative research undertaken in each of the countries visited. Please contact provider
