Experience the World
This credit-bearing course focuses on regional conflict management, conflict resolution and the processes that underlie both.

Previous trips have gone to countries like China, Germany, Japan, Poland, Israel/Palestine, Bosnia, Cyprus, East Timor, Ireland, Rwanda, Cambodia, and South Africa.
In this program, students explore the complexity of social justice in relationship to concepts studied in the classroom by traveling abroad for a service learning experience. By engaging with people from communities around the world, listening to their stories and observing the challenges they face, students learn the importance of making a positive and sustainable difference in the world. Past trips have included Greece, Cambodia, the Philippines, USA, Jordan, Tanzania, Ethiopia, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, China, Sri Lanka, and South Africa.
