With a foundation of multicultural awareness gained through a course of study connecting reading and media study to prior experience during the spring semester, students will engage in a two-week summer study program in England where they will pursue the courses EDUC 336& 376, while working on projects and building relationships with immigrant and local students. In dialogue with students from British ex- and current colonies and their allies and peers, students will gain a deeper understanding of multicultural diversity and the impact of colonialism on the lives of young people and their families across the world. This will translate into a greater understanding of similar dynamics at home. Participants will also visit important historical sites and explore many of the cultural contributions of immigrants and native English people.
