Learn while making a difference in an African community!
Spend the summer in South Africa and explore the growing role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in bringing social development to this dynamic and promising African country. This 12-credit course combines academic instruction with community-based learning through service projects that meet community needs. You will:
- Explore the richness and diversity of African communities.
- Examine social justice issues.
- Gain experience through service-learning projects.
Prepare for travel with a variety of readings in the areas of South African history and politics, social and community development studies, nongovernmental organizations and a rudimentary introduction to field research. Dr. Vernon Johnson, Political Science Professor, and Dr. John Korsmo, Human Services Associate Professor, will lead the program in South Africa.
