Study Abroad: Zambia, Summer 2015

Zambia Info Session Flyer
English Department Students,

There’s talk about an exciting opportunity to go to the lovely and quiet town of Livingstone, Zambia, right next to the world-famous Victoria Falls…for three-weeks…and with the possibility of earning up to three undergraduate or graduate internship credits! Would you be interested in such a thing? If so, keep reading…

Dr. Ellen Brinks will be taking students to Livingstone, Zambia over Summer 2015 to do experiential learning and internships through our Colorado State University Study Abroad program (and African Impact).

“I don’t know. What would I be doing?!?”

The course would run for three weeks and center on a personalized project within the Livingstone community that fits your own interests. There are lots of internship projects – such as working one-on-one or in small groups with children in the classroom, leading a reading club, math club, or adult literacy club, helping with afterschool activities at school or at a youth community training center, as well as offering HIV education – that would be suitable for any concentration or area of study in English and for which you could gain three internship credits. Additional projects in the areas of health care, sports, community development, conservation, wildlife care, and reforestation initiatives are available, though you would not be eligible for English internship credit if you elected to design your stay in Zambia round these activities. (Click here to check out project descriptions.)

“Why would I want to go to Africa?”

This experiential course would count for E487 or E687 credit. It gives you a very unique international internship opportunity in a stable and beautiful country, Zambia. You will be residing and working in the town of Livingstone, right at Victoria Falls, a center of African eco-tourism and safari tours. (Livingstone is the size of Fort Collins). The program likely ties in to coursework you have done in the areas of world literature in English, literacy, and teacher training. And most of all, it enables you to use your skills to give back to underprivileged and wonderful children in this friendly and welcoming community.

“How much would it cost?”

Projected expenses run around $5000, which includes airfare, tuition, vaccinations, and a bunch of other stuff, for three weeks in Africa, including three internship credits. A real bargain!

“I think I’d be down for that!”

If this sounds like an important opportunity that you might want to take advantage of come summer 2015, please come to our informational meeting on Thursday, October 9th, from 4-5pm in Lory Student Center 372. There will be time to address all your questions, along with a PowerPoint presentation with pictures of the program.

**NOTE: By coming to the October 9 meeting you are not committing yourself to taking part. If you’re at all curious or interested, come by simply for more information on this opportunity.**
