Developing a Global Perspective
What better way to broaden your global perspective — one of Alverno’s 8 Abilities — than to pair learning and travel? A number of Alverno courses do just that, capping off a semester’s worth of classroom learning with a summer trip abroad.
Alverno’s short-term study abroad programs are open to current students and alums. To learn more, visit the International and Intercultural Center.
Students taking the Art & Religion of Asia: China course explore how China’s various religions are reflected in the nation’s artwork.
Students enrolled in International Communication: People, History and Culture of Ireland learned about cross-cultural communication, theories of conflict and mediation and the history of conflicts in Ireland.
Future health care professionals gain cultural fluency through Cultural Perspectives in Health Care: Japan, which offers Alverno students a chance to connect with health care professors, students and professionals in Japan through a partnership with Tokyo Women’s Medical University.
