Sociology Study Abroad in Morocco & Spain
May 7- May 29, 2017
3 weeks, 2 continents, 2 countries, 6 cities
Dr. Janet Stamatel will once again teach a comparative criminal justice systems course in Morocco (northern Africa) and Spain (southern Europe). Students will meet with criminal justice professionals (e.g., police, lawyers, judges, social service providers) and visit criminal justice facilities (e.g., prisons, police stations, youth detention centers). Our goal will be to compare and contrast crime and justice between these two countries and also with the United States. There will also be several cultural trips, including the ancient Roman ruins of Volubilis and the magnificent Alhambra palace and gardens.
This program is open to undergraduate students from any major or year in college, as well as graduate students, from any U.S. college or university. All academic content will be taught in English, but if you are learning Arabic, French, or Spanish you’ll be able to practice your language skills.
