Enrollment by permission only. Application required. Intermediate Spanish or above is strongly recommended.
This course requires a 90-minute weekly seminar and a minimum of 10 hours fieldwork a week at an approved internship field site. The seminar is designed to complement your internship fieldwork, exploring many different aspects of your organization and of Argentine Civil Society. Your goal is to finish the semester with an in-depth understanding of your agency. The course provides you with tools to analyze your organization’s approach, its policies, its programs, and the political, legal, social, economic and cultural contexts in which it operates. Guest speakers are invited to the seminar and case studies on Argentina civil society are discussed. You will also spend time reflecting on the internship experience itself as a way to better understand your academic, personal, and career goals.
