INTERNATIONAL FIELD RESEARCH: SPRING BREAK 2015
Students will spend 4 days in Amsterdam and 4 days in Paris for an Alternative Spring Break to study International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs). Participating students will sign up for CLS 362 "International Field Research in Amsterdam & Paris" for the Spring Quarter 2015. Honors students will sign up for CLS 362-H. Students in this course will develop their own NGO. This course will examine the missions of international NGOs such as Doctors Without Borders, MAP International, The Red Cross, The Salvation Army, World Vision, Habitat for Humanity, CARE, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. There will also be a service-learning component to this experience.
Open to all Majors: 25-student limit for Amsterdam/Paris trip. Primarily on a first come first served basis: based on the submission of applications and trip deposit. However, the faculty coordinator will reserve the right to be selective about which students will go on this trip.
