Spring Break Travel “Abroad” – Navajo Nation

by Amizade Global Service-Learning

Amizade is offering college students the chance to “study abroad” within the United States during spring break (March 14-22). Students will travel to Tuba City, Arizona in the Navajo Nation to experience the fascinating culture of the Navajo people and the breathtaking natural beauty of their land. While abroad, students will explore the intricacies of cultural exchange in a three-credit psychology course taught by a WVU professor.

The course, “Journey with Indigenous Cultures: Psychological Issues and Self-Awareness,” will examine the richness and complexity of cultural interaction and challenge students to explore the psychological and social processes involved in cross-cultural contact. The academic content of this course is enhanced by the chance to personally connect with and learn from the people of the Navajo Nation.

Do not miss the opportunity to enroll in a course that incorporates unique academic class work and stimulating cultural events into a rich and unforgettable study “abroad” experience. Apply soon! A $500 tuition discount is available to students that submit applications before December 31, 2008, making the total program fee just $1817. Apply online.
