Social, Educational & Health Services in Tobago (SOCW 325)

No Project Found

In small groups, students shadow professionals in community-based settings, including hospitals, schools, health clinics, and social service agencies. In addition, we hear from local service providers on topics relevant to health, education, and social services. We also participate in a variety of excursions designed to introduce students to the physical as well as cultural and social environment of this beautiful island. In the course, we discuss power and privilege, as well as intersectionality of identities, focusing largely on race, gender, and nationality. Through observations, readings, critical reflections and group debriefing, we explore the meaning of service in the context of another culture, as well as formulating a better understanding of our ethic of meaningful service.

Global and intercultural education is one of the primary focal points of the academic program at Pacific Lutheran University.

Committed to educate for a just, healthy, sustainable, and peaceful world, PLU weaves global education through almost every aspect of a student's study. World events shape our lives, and PLU's curriculum reflects that reality. As a result, students will graduate well prepared for graduate study or a career with a global focus.

PLU's partnership with Earth Deeds allows us to go further in these commitments and enable students to measure and acknowledge the unavoidable carbon footprints from their study away experience and help support a meaningful sustainability project.
