Study abroad in two dynamic countries: Greece and Italy. This course offers multiple themes for study and analysis, including business, tourism, social work, economy, and immigration. Students who choose to focus on immigration will have a rare opportunity to tell immigrants' personal stories of struggle and fortitude. The crashing waves of refugees washing ashore on the coasts of Greece and Italy are changing the face of Europe. Many migrants have arrived in these countries, which are ill prepared financially to care for them. How is their presence affecting the economies and social structures of these two countries? You will speak directly to refugees, those still living in camps and those who are settled in their new homes.
In addition to visiting international iconic destinations such as Rome's Coliseum,
Athen's Acropolis and Sicily's famous Valley of the Temples, you will experience what
life is like in places tourists rarely get to see. You will spend quality time on
the beautiful Greek island of Lesvos, unspoiled by tourism, and now a first-stop for
many refugees who risk their lives crossing the waters to safety. http://www.lesvossolidarity.org/index.php/en/
This course is especially important for students of journalism, tourism, global studies, business and social work. Students may produce either multimedia news reports or research papers.
