For example, as part of this course, students may participate in one of two international Peace Institutes (Mindanao Peace Building Institute in the Philippines and African Peace Building Institute in South Africa) with which Selkirk College has a partnership. While learning in a cross cultural setting, students will be expected to complete assignments from the organization with which they are studying, as well as additional assignments from their Selkirk College instructor.
It is expected that an international or global experience in an academic and practice setting will provide students with a transformative learning experience that will lead to a deeper understanding of building cultures of peace at the interpersonal, community and global levels.
This course is an independent studies course that can be taken anywhere in the world, especially with our sister programs in South Africa and Phillipines.
