Study Abroad Summer 2015

Study Abroad Summer 2015

Registration Deadline: Friday, February 27, 2015

Interested in learning about how other countries approach social work theory and policy? Traveling abroad is an excellent way to experience these approaches firsthand. The School of Social Work offers great study abroad opportunities in China, Mexico, and Italy. 

The program at China’s Beijing Center explores aging and family in a country-specific context. Both cultural and historical factors are analyzed to determine how they have shaped modern Chinese social work practices. The registration deadline for this program is Friday, February 27, 2015. 

In Mexico, the School of Social Work offers intensive field-work placements that challenge students to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to real-life situations. For the 2015 summer, placements will be offered in San Cristobal and Tapachula, both vibrant cities that promise rich experiences. (The application deadline for field placement has passed.)

The program in Italy allows students to take courses at either the University of Milan-Bicocca or Loyola’s John Felice Rome Center. In Milan, students will participate in a seminar that brings students and faculty from China, Italy, and the US to discuss how an aging population is impacting global social services. At the Rome Center, students learn and apply different clinical treatments and therapies in social work practice. The registration deadline for either program is Friday, February 27, 2015.

Our study abroad programs help students develop true understandings of what it means to be a global citizen in such an interconnected world.
