In PUB 300, students will engage in academic, experiential and intercultural learning about South Africa. The focus will be on South Africa’s contemporary social challenges and the strategies that government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and citizen activists are using to address them. Special attention will be paid to how these social conditions and interventions manifest themselves in the lives of South Africans. Following pre-departure class sessions at UMBC, students will spend 2 1/2 weeks in Cape Town, South Africa on a faculty-led program of study combining service-learning with traditional class sessions and site visits to political, historical, and geographic landmarks.
