Multicultural Histories & Legacies of London and Rome

Spring Semester Course and the first four weeks of Summer Term 2018 Experience (May 5-May 30, 2018)

Go GLOBAL with MUNDO in 2018

The Multicultural Histories and Legacies of London and Rome explores how societal issues including socioeconomic status, national origin, race, religion, and politics have shaped the everyday lived experiences of those residing in the United Kingdom and Italy both in the past as well as the present.  The experience is designed to take a closer look at the concept of global citizenship and what it means in an increasingly interconnected world. 

By participating in this experience, students will be able to identify key factors that have shaped the everyday life of community members who represent a diversity of socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds within British and Roman/Italian society. While engaging in 30 hours of service learning experiences during the spring semester, and at least three hours of service abroad, students will also be challenged to take a critical look at just how to provide outreach that is purposeful, relevant, and directly linked to community-identified needs.
