Africa 2013 Trip
The Africa Study Away Program Spring 2013 combined the humanities, social sciences and arts to better understand some of the key historical and contemporary issues of Southern Africa. The curriculum included four courses from the departments of English, Art (photography), Psychology and Sociology. The structure of the program included an intensive three weeks of in-class preparation on campus prior to departure for a nine weeks of travel study in South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana. Time in country was spent listening to guest lecturers, faculty lectures, visiting local agencies, touring key landmarks in each of the respective countries. Following the study away, an additional three weeks of class was held on campus which allowed for reflection, incorporation of materials and knowledge gained abroad.
The plan is for the program to go every other Spring term thereafter (2015, 2017, etc.). Please contact Dr. Kristy Maher in the Sociology Department with any questions regarding future programs and any related application deadlines.
