Study Abroad

Learn outside the classroom.

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.

Special Education in India

(during Intersession)

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.

Arab Women’s Studies in Jordan

(during Spring Break)

In this course, students will explore the varied ways in which Arab women have sought and maintained agency for themselves, their families and their communities. The course includes pre-departure and post-return seminars and  will revolve around a 10-day study abroad component in which students will be immersed in Arab culture and gender roles by traveling to Amman, Jordan. With a particular focus on women’s rights in Jordan, this course explores women’s roles in contemporary Arab society, focusing on the challenges and achievements of Jordanian women leaders.

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.
