Required of all students in Allegheny-sponsored off-campus programs. This course provides grounding in cross-cultural learning and communication, and guidelines for reflection on experiential learning. It provides a framework for students to explore the dimensions of their time off-campus--differences and similarities among people, lifestyles, learning styles, and even knowledge itself. Students must complete the pre-departure orientation requirements (readings, assignments, paperwork submissions, etc.), on-site blogs, and re-entry assignments (final paper & poster session) upon return to Allegheny. The course is posted to their transcript the semester they return to campus. One credit. Distribution Requirements: IP, PD.
