OVERVIEW

Multicultural
Special Note: Priority will be given to the first 15 students with completed applications.

With a foundation of multicultural awareness gained prior to the study abroad experience through reading a few pertinent articles, a novel, and meeting during the spring semester 2016, you will be ready to engage in this 10 day summer study program in England, with an overnight trip to Paris. You will meet and build relationships with local, immigrant, and migrant students from British ex- and current colonies. You will visit the students' schools and religious institutions, engage in diverse hands-on activities, take a walk through the once slave port of Bristol, and experience the ancient site of Stonehenge. You will have the opportunity to take boat trips down the Thames in London and the Seine in Paris, learning about the history of these great cities, including a visit to Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. You will gain a deeper understanding of diversity and the impact of multiculturalism, immigration, colonialism, and racism on the families and education of young people. Not only will this benefit your relationships with people overseas, it will also translate into a greater understanding of similar dynamics back home in the United States. 

Location: South England and Paris, France

England is known for its high-class entertainment and classic British customs. Enjoy a classic spot of English tea (with milk and sugar,) as you recognize how different the country is from the stereotypes you have learned!

Prepare for summer weather comparable to Wisconsin’s with less humidity and more potential for rain. Expect temperatures to range between 60-80 degrees average this time of year and bring an umbrella!
