The course will meet formally during orientation and will have a series of weekly online assignments throughout the term. The course focuses on the student’s experiences abroad in the context of their personal reflections on living in another country, their shifting perspectives on the world and their role in it, the ways their interactions abroad have had an impact on their global citizenship.
