Study Abroad

One of the more important experiences for students is for them to study abroad. I believe it not only introduces them to a global perspective but allows them to apply their sociological imaginations to different contexts around the world. Since 2009, I have taken students to western Europe (France, Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg) to study race and ethnic relations, as well as the causes and consequences of war. In 2013, Dr. Edward Behrend-Martinez and I also took students to Spain and Ireland to study religious and ethnic conflict. We plan to return this coming year, 2015! See some great group pictures from a number of my trips.
