Travel, connect and apply your learning to projects working alongside Maya communities in southern Belize!
This course provides an opportunity for students to undertake a service-learning project facilitated by our partner organization in Belize, the Center for Engaged Learning Abroad (CELA). In Belize, students work with local people on a project identified by the community. GINS 3200 is taught by a Carleton faculty member. The course involves three weeks of classes on the Carleton campus, followed by a two-week field experience in Belize and concluding with a final one week of classes at Carleton. The Student Experience Office handles all logistics for the course, including booking accommodations and airfare.
The IER bursary is available to Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) students registered in this course and allocated based on financial need. Students in other departments are also eligible to apply for this bursary. In 2019, all GINS 3200 students who applied received some funding.
Applications for summer 2020 GINS 3200 are now live and will remain open until Friday, January 24, 2020.
Students can apply at the BGInS website.
