Tanzania Study Tour/Environment, Culture and Human Services

ANTH 490/STL 490/590

Led by Dr. Bruce Roberts (Anthropology/Earth Science) and Dr. John Benson (School of Teaching and Learning) this unique immersive, experiential educational opportunity will focus on the challenges of delivering basic social services — healthcare and education — to the diverse population of this rapidly developing nation. This program is open to students of all majors.

Both instructors have extensive firsthand experience in Tanzania, offering students unique insights into the cultures and people of this incredibly warm and hospitable country. This program will include structured hands-on learning opportunities, site visits to schools, universities/colleges, health clinics and hospitals, as well as “safaris” to several of Tanzania’s National Parks. Activities will be complemented with readings, thematic lectures, and structured group discussion. Face-to-face class meetings will prepare students for their field experience and will be held on Jan. 24, Feb. 7, Feb. 21, Mar. 21, Apr. 4, and May 2. Travel to Tanzania will be May 19-June 8, 2019. Tuition can be banded with Spring 2019 registration and enrolled students will be eligible for financial aid.
