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.
Below are a few of our past programs.
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.
(during Spring Break)
Topics will include: Jordanian cultural history and Islam, family and gender roles in contemporary Jordanian society, the important role of women in education, social media, and politics; the development of the Jordanian National Commission for Women, and discrimination against women. Students in this course will attain an awareness of the challenges and achievements of Jordanian women and challenge Western assumptions about the nature of women’s lives in the Arab world. A series of guest lectures has been organized in coordination with site visits around Amman. The program will culminate with an overnight trip to the Dead Sea and Petra.
Student teach abroad through Adelphi’s affiliation with the Global Student Teaching program of the University of Minnesota, Morris.
