Study Abroad in Trinidad & Tobago
This is a faculty led trip in which students collaborate with government agencies and local communities to provide them with opportunities to support their educational and career goals. This opportunity is focused on how we grow and develop as individuals within the context of our families, communities, places of employment, and culture. This opportunity is especially geared toward students interested in psychology, social work, music, fine arts, family and consumer science, health education, sociology, economics, and history and geography.
