HC 125   International Awareness Field Study (2 Hours)

This is a service-learning course. While partnering with a not-for-profit agency, teams of students will deliver service to a community in a developing country that suffers from extreme poverty. The service provided will vary depending on the identified needs of the community. While serving in the developing country, students will gain an understanding of the culture, language and health status of the people. Students will be exposed to the social, political and economic aspects of life that shape the community. Prior to travel, students are required to attend preparation meetings, fund raise and participate in a local service project. 16 hrs. lecture, 40 hrs. field study.
