In January of each year, SIT Graduate Institute offers optional field courses in different locations around the world. These intensive field courses provide students with experiential learning opportunities in the US and abroad through interaction with practitioners in the field, organization and project site visits, and professional networking.
This year, in addition to courses in India, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados, eight students traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, the ideal location for a two-week intercultural communication course.
“It’s a very vibrant community, that speaks to the kind of work that we’re doing here in terms of social justice and caring about people from other cultures,” said Karen Blanchard, who lead the course.
