New Travel Course Focuses on Human Development in South Africa

A new 3-credit course, Human Development in South Africa, will be offered during January 2010 (before classes begin for the spring semester).  The course will take place on the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University campus in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on the Eastern Cape of the country, which is along the Indian Ocean. We will study life span human development, from prenatal care to end-of-life care, visit organizations from orphanages to retirement homes, and draw cross-cultural comparisons. In addition, students will have opportunities to visit Addo Elephant Park, the Winterberg Farmlands, and Tsitsikamma National Park. Please visit the International Fair this Thursday, Sept 17 for further details or see Dr. Illene Noppe.
