There are so many options available to students for international study, provided through Augsburg’s Center for Global Education and Experience. Many students have successfully completed major courses as well as core requirements abroad on both short-term and semester programs in several different countries.
GENDER AND SOCIAL CHANGE IN MEXICO
Spend the fall semester at Augsburg’s own Mexico location! The Crossing Borders: Gender and Social Change in Mesoamerica semester program focuses on gender and sexuality in a Mexican context, and is taught by Augsburg’s permanent faculty in Mexico, Ann Lutterman-Aguilar and Antonio Ortega.
On this program, students will examine how gender roles, sexuality, history, and culture collide. Several travel experiences are part of the program, including a seminar in Mexico City, a visit to a local volcano, natural waterparks, and more. Other highlights include an opportunity to finish two levels of Spanish, delve into an internship focusing on your major area, LGBTQ-friendly homestays, and interact with local officials and guest speakers.
Augsburg students receive an automatic $1,000 scholarship on this program, and save money on lower room and board fees – which makes this program one of the most affordable study abroad options for Auggies.
OTHER STUDY ABROAD OPTIONS
In addition to the fall program in Mexico, CGEE also operates permanent locations in Central America and Southern Africa, which also offer a variety of Women/Gender Studies courses with a social justice focus.
Students may also elect to study abroad through one of our Global Affiliates, Exchange Universities, and various short-term programs (including programs led by Women/Gender Studies faculty!) each year.
