Imagine where you can go …
Ag Comm majors can explore the many options available to study abroad through particular courses, the honors college, and the Study Abroad Office. Study Abroad programs are all unique so the more you know about what you want from the experience, the better you can plan. Begin with an understanding of the different types of programs. There are those that last for a semester, but new short term programs are being developed every year to accommodate the needs of different students.
At the University of Illinois, many students are provided with opportunities to study abroad through particular courses, the honors college, and the Study Abroad Office.
Guys needed for South Africa winter break experience
Interested in spending winter break in sunny South Africa? I run a faculty-led service trip to Cape Town, departing around Dec. 27 and returning on Martin Luther King Day. The program and 2nd eight-week pre-departure class focus on South African history, current social and political constructs, food security, and social services. We do some amazing tourism in Cape Town and Johannesburg, as well as service work in the impoverished townships surrounding Cape Town. This is a nice addition to your resume, and you gain international experience!
The application due date for this trip has passed, but I am still seeking a few guys to join the group, especially to help out at a small animal vet clinic and/or community garden. Please contact me directly, as soon as possible, for more information, trip budget, scholarship information, and to get the study abroad application page open for you. Also, please contact me for information about a full 14 to 16 credit hour spring semester in Cape Town—two university courses of your choice and internship custom fit to your career goals. Please check out our new recruitment video that was filmed in Cape Town in January. Perhaps you'll see Illinois students you know: https://youtu.be/EYU8IfomYbQ.
