PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In this 6-credit study abroad program students will come face to face with the challenge of economic disparities and questions of social equity as students are pushed out of the classroom so as to apply theory to practice in examining social realities in the Dominican Republic. Students will work on a number of applied projects where they interview and engage with community members. Part of the learning experience for our students is that they understand how to interact with others outside of their own culture and community in a socially just manner. In the History course (Dr. Autumn Quezada-Grant), students will study the historical and cultural dimensions of social justice in the island of Hispaniola.

In the Public Health course, Perspectives in Global Health, will explore the infrastructure and delivery of health care, specific health issues to the Dominican Republic, as well as traditional healing and the historical structures of inequity, poverty and marginalization
