CICDA - Religion and Culture Students Going Global
“Cultural Learning” can take many forms; volunteering with an NGO (non-governmental organization), embarking on a pilgrimage abroad, experiencing religion and culture. Construct an intercultural/international learning experience that is a self-directed, or group-directed, intellectual project. Imagine the possibilities, explore the opportunities, challenge yourself to become an engaged and aware citizen of an increasingly complex world.
Being a Religion and Culture major has many benefits. This academic year we’re delighted to say that there will be another: the opportunity to receive up to $2500 to extend your learning abroad for several weeks between May 1 and August 31, 2013. The Department of Religion and Culture received $5,000 from The Council for the Intellectual and Cultural Development of the Arts (CICDA) to support this type of learning for two R&C students.
Religion and Culture faculty members, in co-operation with Laurier International, will select the top two proposals by December 21, 2012. Proposals will be judged on feasibility, creativity, and learning potential. That is to say, is the project as imagined likely to be successful, does it build effectively out of a student’s undergraduate program, and does it offer the potential for deep and sustained learning?
