Polish Program at Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

 

In this time of globalization, Cleveland is looking for its strengths and for potential for development. One of our greatest strengths is our population of immigrants. Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) of Case Western Reserve University is helping to build cultural competency of social workers working in Cleveland’s diverse social environment. We are happy to announce that MSASS has added workshops and classes concerning Poland to its international curriculum this year.

Travel to Poland, Spring, 2012

Mandel School offers travel-abroad courses for college students and health and human service professionals, during spring break

Cleveland, OH—Take an educational holiday overseas in March 2012 during Spring Break and engage in cross-cultural studies of social policies and practices for health and human services. Several three-credit travel courses for Case Western Reserve University students are open to students at other colleges and universities and to working professionals in health and human services. (CEUs may be offered).

Arrangements can be made for credits to be offered as independent study with permission from home college/university.

This trip is led and taught by experienced instructors and faculty from the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (school of social work) at Case Western Reserve, who travel with and lodge at the same location as students. Each trip is also designed around a course syllabus and assignments that promote interaction with policymakers and direct-service providers in the country being visited.
