BRAZIL

Program:  SIT Brazil: Public Health, Race, and Human Rights

Website:  http://www.sit.edu/BRH

Field of Study:  Biology, Health Sciences, Public Health, Pre-Med, Development Studies, or other related fields

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA; No prerequisites, although a background in Portuguese, Spanish, or another Romance language is highly recommended

Dates:  Fall: September – December; Spring: late February – early June

Academic Program:  Investigate healthcare realities, policy, and delivery systems among disadvantaged groups in the Brazilian state of Bahia. An in-depth exploration of healthcare policies in Brazil – how these policies are constructed and implemented and their resulting impacts on different groups and communities. Through lectures, seminars, site visits, and ongoing engagement with local practitioners and patrons in the healthcare system, students are completely immersed in the complexities of healthcare in Brazil. In particular, students focus on the intersections between race and health, and between health and human rights.

Alongside their exploration of Brazil’s formal healthcare system, students also study traditional Afro-Brazilian healing practices in both urban and rural areas, especially those practices rooted in the Candomblé spiritual belief system. Students learn from physicians and nurses, government health officials, political activists, representatives of international NGOs and multilateral agencies such as the United Nations, urban and rural residents, herbalists, and Candomblé healers in the Brazilian northeast. The program is based in Salvador, the capital of Bahía and the largest city in the Brazilian northeast. Of Salvador's 2.8 million residents, approximately 80 percent are of African descent. Salvador is an ideal base from which to explore issues of public health, community welfare, and social justice in Brazil, given its tremendous diversity.

Registering for Courses at SIT Brazil: Public Health, Race, and Human Rights: Credit value of each course is 3. Students will enroll in 5 courses, or 15 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Housing and Meals:    Homestay. All meals covered during the program. Students have several different homestay experiences, which help them gain a comprehensive picture of the socioeconomic differences comprising Brazilian daily life. Host families provide a safe and welcoming environment, allowing students to experience the different facets of Brazilian home life firsthand. Many students consider the homestay experience to be one of the most meaningful parts of the program.

Urban Homestay in Salvador:  During the first seven weeks of the semester, students live with host families in Salvador, where they experience urban culture in the northeast, practice their Portuguese language skills, and learn about their host family's experience with the Brazilian healthcare system. Students are welcomed as members of their host family and integrated into the family's everyday life. Students live in different socioeconomic neighborhoods – some underprivileged, some middle class. When possible, students are placed with homestay families that match their interests.

Rural Homestays in Cachoeira and Remanso:  Students also have a four-day homestay in Cachoeira and a seven-day homestay in Remanso. During the excursion to Cachoeira, located in the Recôncavo Region of Bahia, a two-hour drive from Salvador, students have a short rural homestay experience in Alecrim, the rural area of Cachoeira. Most of the host families are small agricultural producers, mainly of cassava, okra, tropical fruits, and vegetables. For four days, students live with their host families while learning about the day-to-day cultural life and social determinants of health in this area. In Remanso, students participate in a rural homestay in a quilombo located outside the city of Lençóis, in the Parque Nacional da Chapada Diamantina. For seven days, students learn about the intersections between physical environments and health.

Other accommodations on the program could include hostels, private homes, or small hotels.

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA; One semester of Portuguese or two semesters of a college-level Romance language other than Portuguese

Dates:  Fall: August – December; Spring: early March – mid June

Academic Program:  Northeastern Brazil is a patchwork of contrasting elements: millionaires and peasants; abundant rainforests and drought-plagued agriculture; avant-garde architecture and slums all simultaneously coexist in this complex region. Within this paradoxical context, this program examines the vast human and environmental challenges confronting northeast Brazil's populations and the impact of social inequities on economic growth. Students interact with different ethnic groups, including indigenous and Afro Brazilian populations, to gain insight into the challenges and benefits of implementing social change within a multicultural environment. The program is based in Fortaleza, the modern seaside capital of the state of Ceará. Students attend classes at the Instituto Brasil/Estados Unidos/Ceará (IBEU-CE), a binational center dedicated to the promotion of cultural ties and understanding between the people of Brazil and the United States. Local academics, community leaders, and researchers lead lectures and seminars on Brazilian culture, development, and social justice. Students engage with leading organizations working to promote social justice in the area including the Movement of Landless Rural Workers (MST) and Banco Palmas. Excursion sites typically include one other location in northeast Brazil, such as Recife, Salvador, or São Luis.

Registering for Courses at SIT Brazil: Social Justice and Sustainable Development: Credit value of each course is 3. Students will enroll in 5 courses, or 15 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Housing and Meals: Homestay. All meals covered during the program. Students stay in urban and rural homestays in order to expose students to two different lifestyles and perspectives on social justice and economic development in Brazil.

Fortaleza Homestay:  During the first seven weeks of the program, students live with host families in Fortaleza. Students gain valuable insight into urban Brazilian life and visit other participants' homestay families to expand their community contacts. Host families are chosen for their interest in, and connections to, the program theme. Most host families come from working and middle class backgrounds and represent a cross-section of ethnicities.

Movement of Landless Rural Workers (MST) Homestay:  During their educational excursion to a rural MST settlement, students stay with working families and meet with movement leaders to learn about the importance of the MST movement and the challenges facing that community. Often, students are able to actively participate in their homestay families’ agricultural activities, such as milking cows, harvesting crops, or taking cattle to pasture.

Other accommodations during the program include hostels, private homes, and/or small hotels.

GHANA

Program:  SIT Ghana: Social Transformation and Cultural Expression

Field of Study:  Visual and Performing Arts, Ethnomusicology, History, Economics, Gender Studies.

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA; There are no prerequisites.

Dates: Fall: August – December; Spring: late January – mid May

Academic Program:  Explore Ghana’s rich cultural heritage and contemporary society. Engage with Ghanaian scholars, writers, and artists. A country renowned for its dynamic cultural expressions, Ghana boasts an outstanding artistic heritage that manifests itself in all aspects of performance and craft. Students explore this rich heritage through deep and meaningful engagement with Ghanaian scholars, artists, dancers, musicians, painters, sculptors, weavers, writers, and other in-country experts. Interdisciplinary coursework, in the classroom and in the field, reveals to students the historical and contemporary circumstances that have shaped Ghanaian society and the artistic outputs of this complex and highly diverse West African country. Lecturers are drawn from various Ghanaian institutions such as those listed below and also include individuals renowned for their work in all aspects of visual and performing arts: University of Ghana; University of Education, Winneba; University of Cape Coast; and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

Registering for Courses at SIT Ghana: Social Transformation and Cultural Expression: Credit value of each course is 3. Students enroll in 5 courses, or 15 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Housing and Meals: Homestay. All meals covered during the program. Students have three distinct homestay experiences in Accra, Kumasi, and an Ashanti village. Time in both urban and rural areas gives students exceptional insight into the diversity of Ghanaian identities and perspectives as well as the country's rich cultural heritage. By sharing daily activities with their families, students are fully immersed within the local culture and community; homestays also provide students with an ideal opportunity to practice their language skills, enjoy home-cooked Ghanaian cuisine, and experience Ghana's unique and revered style of hospitality. During the homestay, students tend to be struck by the role of religion, the phenomenon of the extended family, and the role of migration in contemporary Ghanaian society.

Accra and Kumasi (two weeks each): Homestays in both Accra and Kumasi, Ghana's two largest cities respectively, give students the chance to engage with Ghanaian families within an urban context. Both Accra and Kumasi are sites of rapid migration similar to many other urban locales across Africa. Ghanaian families from a cross-section of economic, religious, and social backgrounds graciously open their doors and hearts to program participants, granting students a far deeper understanding of Ghana and its people. Students often attend important religious and social events with their host families in both Accra and Kumasi.

Ashanti village (two weeks): During their time in Ashanti region, students also experience Ghanaian daily life in a rural environment. Students have the opportunity to improve their language skills by speaking Twi with their host family and other community members in a rural Ashanti village. During this twelve-day period, students sharpen their research skills through completion of a short-term project on a topic of their choosing, directly immersing students in the research process. Past projects have focused on Ghanaian farming, political systems, religion, education, seamstress work, batiking, and music. During this period of the program, students experience community storytelling, support community-initiated projects, and undertake excursions to observe the work of farmers and palm wine tappers.

Other accommodations during the program include hostels, private homes, or small hotels.

Furthermore, the program has a policy of putting two students of the same gender in one home. Two students living in one home and traveling to and from program activities together helps enhance the safety of students. In the event of an emergency, families are equipped to respond. Over the course of the semester, the homestay coordinator and academic director check in regularly with students and homestay families.

Rural homestay:  Some of the students opting for rural workshops have an opportunity to live for a few days with local Himalayan communities in the remote villages of the Nainital district in Uttarakhand state.

MOROCCO

Program:  SIT Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity

Website:  http://www.sit.edu/MOM  

Field of Study: Wide range of subjects such as refugees, borders and borderlands, gender, religion and mobility, migration and human rights, migration and development, social movements, and transnational identities

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA; There are no prerequisites; however, students with a background in French will find ample opportunity for French language practice while also learning Arabic. Students with a background in Spanish will also have the opportunity to practice their Spanish language skills in northern Morocco.

Dates: Fall: August – December; Spring: late January – mid May

Academic Program:  Examine the factors driving internal and international migration in Morocco and elsewhere in North and sub-Saharan Africa. Students consider how human mobility is shaped by religion, security, youth culture, desertification, poverty, and other pressing issues and how mobility engenders transnational art and multilayered identities. The program is based in Rabat, Morocco's academic, political, and cultural center. In Rabat, students receive thematic lectures and intensive language instruction in Modern Standard Arabic that includes 15 hours of Moroccan dialect. Learn more about the program’s coursework. Excursions to northern and rural areas of Morocco as well as to Amsterdam in the Netherlands illuminate many different aspects of migration. Learn more about these excursions. Students learn from Moroccan and European academics and policymakers, NGO and human rights activists, artists, and experts in the area of migration as it relates to law, international relations, and development.

Registering for Courses at SIT Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity: Credit value of each course is 3. Students enroll in 5 courses, or 15 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Housing and Meals:   Homestay. All meals covered during the program. Living with a host family is an integral component of studying with SIT Morocco. Homestays provide students with a unique window into the daily life, values, and perspectives of Moroccan families as well as an opportunity to practice language skills, particularly darija (Moroccan Arabic), and in some cases also French. The program contains two homestay experiences in very different environments, illustrating to students the enormous differences between life in urban and rural Moroccan communities.

Rabat: Students live with middle- and working-class families in Rabat for seven weeks. Homestay families are located in the city's seventeenth-century medina, a captivating and historic area of Rabat with an original and independent architectural style.

With their host families, students experience Moroccan daily life, accompanying family members on regular activities such as shopping in the souk, going on café outings, and taking bread to the neighborhood faran (local bakery). They also have the opportunity to visit the hammam (Moroccan public bath). Homestays provide an opportunity to participate in family cultural events, which could include family weddings or newborn naming ceremonies. Students also may be invited by their host brother or sister to the weekly soccer match. The homestay in Rabat is coordinated by the program's host institution, the Center for Cross Cultural Learning (CCCL), which has been collaborating with homestay families for more than a decade.

Fqih Ben Saleh:  The rural village stay in Fqih Ben Saleh offers students a different perspective on the host culture in contrast to the homestay in urban Rabat. Many customs and features of Moroccan culture derive from rural or agrarian traditions; the experience of living in rural homes sheds new light on Morocco’s cultural norms. The village stay is also an opportunity for students to learn about the realities of Moroccan ethnic groups and marginal rural communities distinct from the mainstream urban culture. This offers important insights on the historical formation of national identity and ways in which local ethnic or political power is maintained.

Other accommodations during the program include hostels or small hotels.

Most of the residents of Ait Ouahi speak Tamazight (Berber), and a few speak Moroccan Arabic. Most families work in agriculture for local consumption. Students share in the daily activities of their host families: farming, taking care of livestock, cooking, and singing and dancing in communal ceremonies. Students also contribute to community development activities at the village’s elementary school (e.g., tree planting and teaching English) and engage in group discussions with village residents. Most homes in the village have electricity and Turkish toilets.

Other accommodations during the program include hostels, private homes, or small hotels.

Multiple Locations

Program:  IHP Health and Community: Globalization, Culture, and Care

Website:  http://www.sit.edu/HCA  

Field of Study:  Public Health, Global Health, Anthropology

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA.

Dates:  Fall: August – December; Spring: January – May

Academic Program:  Investigate how communities can ensure the health and well-being of all citizens amid mounting challenges created by changing economic, environmental, and social forces. What are the forces that create good public health in some communities, and ill health in others? Why have health disparities within and across countries widened, even as modern healthcare has discovered the causes of many illnesses and prevented many deaths? The Health and Community program strengthens students' ability to understand, interpret and compare the biological, ecological, economic, political, and socio-cultural factors that affect human health.  Students broaden their global perspective and deepen their skills in critical and comparative thinking, while gaining practical knowledge about: The health impacts of globalization; Comparative health systems; Governance and policymaking; Public health issues and innovative strategies to address them; and Field-based research methods and analysis. From Southeast Asia to South Africa, in city neighborhoods and rural villages, students learn to listen to and understand multiple voices: people in local communities, governing bodies, and non-governmental agencies. Future healthcare leaders come away with the confidence to ask important questions, analyze alternatives, and set priorities for achieving sustainable and just solutions.

Registering for Courses at IHP Health and Community: Globalization, Culture, and Care: Credit value of each course is 4. Students enroll in 4 courses, or 16 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Housing and Meals:    Homestay. All meals covered during the program. Students live with a host family for two to four weeks in all locations other than the first country. Homestays are the primary form of accommodation on the program. (Other accommodations include hotels or hostels). Homestay families provide students the opportunity to live as integrated members of their host communities. In sharing daily life, conversations, family stories, celebrations, and community events, students not only learn a tremendous amount, but often develop lasting friendships. Family structures vary in every place, and SIT Study Abroad values the diversity of homestay families. For example, your family may include a single mother of two small children or a large extended family with many people coming and going all the time. Please bear in mind that, in many countries, the idea of what constitutes a “home” (i.e., the physical nature of the house) may be different from what you expect. You will need to be prepared to adapt to a new life with a new diet, a new schedule, new people, and possibly new priorities and expectations.  Country coordinators in each location will arrange homestay placements. In most cases, students will be placed in homestays in pairs. These placements are made first based on health concerns, including any allergies or dietary needs, to the extent possible. You will not receive information about your homestay family before you arrive in each country.

Program:  IHP Cities in the 21st Century:  People, Planning, and Politics

Website:  http://www.sit.edu/CTA  

Field of Study:  Urban Politics & Development, Culture & Society of World Cities, Urban Planning & Sustainable Environments, Contemporary Urban Issues: Problems & Solutions

Eligibility:  2.5 GPA; Previous college-level coursework and/or other preparation in urban studies, anthropology, political science, or other related fields is strongly recommended but not required.

Dates:  Fall: August – December; Spring: January – May

Academic Program:  The Cities in the 21st Century program examines the intentional and natural forces that guide the development of the world's cities. It combines an innovative urban studies academic curriculum with fieldwork involving public agencies, planners, elected officials, NGOs, and grassroots groups in important world cities where exciting changes are taking place.  Students learn how to "read a city"—an iterative process that hones the ability to observe, question, document, research, and communicate—leading to a better understanding of the interconnected social, physical, economic, environmental, and political systems that affect urban environments.  Students examine how the structure of a city enhances or impedes growth. They learn who exercises power in cities and where power comes from. And they examine the role of state and local government in formulating development policies in a changing world economy and the challenges public policymakers face in light of increasing inequity.  IHP's comparative approach enables students to analyze and contrast major issues across cities and to track how concerns manifest themselves in the planning process, and ultimately, in a course of action. 

Registering for Courses at IHP Cities in the 21st Century: People, Planning, and Politics: Credit value of each course is 4. Students enroll in 4 courses, or 16 credits. You may not opt for any other form of registration without prior approval from Bryn Mawr College.

Homestays are the primary form of accommodation on the program. (Other accommodations include hotels or hostels.) Host families provide students with the opportunity to live as an integrated member of their community.
