Wheaton in Hawai’i – Fall 2018
February 14, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
An all new, faculty-led study away program, Hawaiian Expressivity in Socio-Cultural Context: A Humanities-Based Domestic Study Away Program is accepting applications for Fall 2018 enrollment. Students accepted into the program will live in a dormitory setting based in Honolulu. While in Honolulu students will experience several islands through a series of field trips to museums, historical sites, cultural institutions, and music and dance performance venues on the island of Oahu, and will have the opportunity to meet and work with authorities on Hawaiian arts, history, and language both inside and outside the classroom such as during visits to important historical and cultural institutions in Honolulu and on the big island of Hawai’i.
This “integrated learning” approach of the program is designed to sharpen students powers of observation and critique, increase confidence in the ability to address ethical decisions, and enhance students’ worldviews and global perspectives, all with direct, powerful implications for ensuing life and career paths. Students will earn 4 Wheaton credits upon completion of the program. Application deadline is March 1, 2018. The program is open to all Wheaton students, in all majors. Faculty Directors are Matthew Allen and Julie Searles.
