Each summer, the Master of Arts in Leadership program offers a course that allows students to travel abroad and study leadership practices in other countries.
ML 577 Universal Responsibility: A Central American Perspective explores this concept both intellectually and through experience. This Master of Arts in Leadership course, organized through Augsburg’s Center for Global Education and Experience, is open to all Augsburg graduate students.
We are happy to announce the option for MA in Leadership students to apply for one of three $1,000 scholarships to help offset the cost of this course.
To be considered, graduate students must be enrolled in the MA in Leadership program, have a 3.5 GPA or higher, and have taken ML505 and two other MA in Leadership courses.
Study abroad in Costa Rica
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in Ethics for the New Millennium, makes a strong case for the need to cultivate what he calls universal responsibility, based on a fundamental belief that everything we do has a universal dimension – it contributes to the happiness or suffering of others.
Program activities include:
- Exploring Costa Rica
- Meeting with leaders in government, business, healthcare, social service, education, natural medicine, and the arts
- Visiting the National University of Costa Rica, La Carpio community, and Costa Rica National Museum
- Visiting Manuel Antonio National Park, beach, and Central Craft Market
Through selected readings, discussions, self- assessments, journaling, research, and personal reflection, you will develop your own perspective on what universal responsibility means to you and leadership in your profession.
Augsburg Master of Leadership and Master of Physician Studies students engage in an interdisciplinary study abroad experience. While there are large group activities, each program follows their individualized itinerary as they explore leadership from a global perspective.
