Dawson said, “One of the things I love about study abroad in general and not this particular program is the kind of engagement and curiosity that we rarely if ever get that kind of engagement in the classroom.”
While in India, students are expected to keep a travel journal of their experiences while visiting different parts of the country.
Throughout the trip, students on the trip will be tasked with assignments.
Dawson said, “The way that it is organized is I’ll have a number of readings that will be posted on Moodle… there will probably be some short writing responses attached to that.”
A common misconception about study abroad programs is that they can be quite difficult to afford especially when going to such great distances like India.
The Experiential Learning Grant, set up by the University, helps to cover nearly 50% of tuition costs for trips that take place in January and summer terms.
