International Service Learning
These off-campus cultural immersion experiences are intended to expose undergraduate students to applicable theories of intergroup contact, transitional justice, conflict resolution, and international travel to Northern Ireland or Bosnia-Herzegovina/Croatia during Summer Term I. Based on the pedagogical model of learning-through-doing, 8-12 students per program will gain practical experience working directly on a faculty member’s on-going research project in Northern Ireland or Bosnia and Herzegovina/Croatia. Students will develop knowledge of the impact that intergroup contact has in assisting conflict resolution, behavioral and mental health, and multicultural psychology. Emphasis is based on cognitive, social, and peace psychology perspectives.
