Goshen College. Study-Service Trimester Program. A Concise Summary.
Goshen Coll., IN.
A Study-Service Trimester program combining study with field service and integrated into a normal term of four-year liberal arts education is described. The program is intended to offer students an opportunity to examine and experience the culture of another country and the chance to serve in a practical way, e.g. as teaching assistants, health service aids, playground supervisors, construction helpers and in other services that work closely with local persons. Developing countries in Central America and the Caribbean are selected as field study sites. This booklet contains information on the funding and administration of the program and the selection and responsibilities of participants, as well as a discussion of the educational philosophy underlying the program. A typical program of studies, field trips, and field placement assignments is outlined in the appendix. (JD)
