Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

CALS offers students opportunities for experiential and engaged learning through internships in communities and organizations locally, domestically, and internationally. In the Fall semester following an engaged experience, students majoring IARD or GDEV, as well as participants in the CALS Global Fellows Program, Lund Fellows Program, and others (with permission of the instructors) will engage in critical reflection through small group sessions in which students focus on contexts specific to their internship program. The course also includes large group sessions focused on professional skill development and learning across professional contexts in comparative perspective. This structure enables students' deep context-specific critical reflection alongside program cohort mates while also learning from peers across programs that have had regionally and thematically diverse internship experiences.
