Description:
MSID seeks to engage students in an environment of reciprocal learning concerning local and global problems with a particular focus on development issues. These programs in Ecuador and Kenya allow 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 in addition to program coursework. Students are placed in homestays to facilitate language development and community integration. Applicants must have junior or senior status during the program.

Prerequisites:
Applicants must have junior or senior status during the program and have taken at least 4 college-level Spanish courses.
