Credits 3
Integrative Experience Course
Integrative Experience

This program offers the opportunity to study key issues facing women around the world and in the U.S. as we move into the 21st century. Whether considering critical issues such as women’s health, including childbearing and HIV/AIDS, gender and family, universal legal and human rights, women in war and in post-conflict circumstances, human trafficking, economic entrepreneurship and micro-lending, students will have a chance to critically assess case studies in an intensive academic seminar. Through a professional and academic experience, students will also consider these questions: how do we develop more opportunities for women in Congress and parliaments, state houses, executive corporate leadership, international organizations, nonprofit leadership? Sample internships include: Vital Voices, Women’s Policy, Inc., Women for Women, EMILY’s List, National Democratic Institute, NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), International Women’s Forum and International Republican Institute. Graded by WII faculty.
