MSID seeks to engage students in an environment of reciprocal learning concerning local and global problems with a particular focus on development issues. This program allows anthropology, environmental studies, government, psychology, and other students interested in the theoretical and practical implications of international development and social justice to study firsthand the challenges faced by developing countries. Students gain hands-on experience by participating in a community-based internship. Students are placed in a home stay to facilitate community integration.

Applicants must have junior or senior status during the program.

There is currently a US Department of State Travel Warning for Kenya. Therefore, students are not able to participate in the program at this time. Please consult the Off-Campus Programs Coordinator if you have questions about this policy.
