The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education offers many opportunities for you experience other cultures while studying abroad. Programs led by Adelphi faculty are offered during the January intersession and spring break session. These short-term study abroad programs have limited enrollment.
Special Education in India
Currently, individuals with disabilities in India are either served in segregated programs or, in the case of infants and young children, they receive very few services. Students will have the opportunity to travel to Kerala, a state in southwest India, to learn about the special education system, family practices, traditions and cultures in the country.
Participants will have the opportunity to work with children with disabilities in special schools and interact with their teachers and parents. Participants will also enjoy local sightseeing and shopping, ride elephants, spend a day on a house boat and enjoy evenings with various cultural activities.
Student teach abroad through Adelphi’s affiliation with the Global Student Teaching program of the University of Minnesota, Morris.
