About the Program:

This course is designed to provide undergraduate/graduate students with a four week international learning opportunity to have an international experience aimed at stimulating and expanding students’ perspectives in cross-cultural and cross-national human services systems. It will encourage students to experience, first hand, new international and cross-cultural learning in a variety of human service settings. The focus will be on the application of knowledge, values, and skills, and the problem-solving process to human services policy, programs/services, and practices. The course content will view the impact of gender, culture, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, religion/spirituality, age, generation, and ability across the lifespan on human service issues.
