New Course: Sociology 435 – Perspectives in Global Community Partnership

What are the ethics and what is the impact of volunteering abroad?

Sociology 435 provides students an opportunity to deepen their formal preparation for citizenship through a field placement in a ‘developing’ country. A key goal of this course is to integrate classroom-based instruction and experiential learning, by connecting theoretical knowledge to everyday practices through which ‘citizenship’ operates as an ’embodied’ concept. Students will be encouraged to think critically about the impact that their presence will have on project partners, and the ethics of working with communities of ‘others’.

What: SOCI 435
When: Summer 2008
