The history of Australia, the world’s smallest continent and largest island, has been molded from afar by the British and the western world and by its own diverse geography and aboriginal population. Over the last two hundred years it has grown into a multicultural society with 90 percent of its population living in urban areas.
Students participating on the program will observe and participate in human and social services programs that exist within a context of socialized medicine—a system that, according to many of those it serves, works well.
This program will focus on history, culture and psychology in contemporary Australia. The program’s location is the urban coast area of Brisbane, Queensland, where students will live with Australian host families. The program begins with 2 weeks of academic sessions in a lecture/discussion format and continues with a 5-week internship in a social service agency of interest.
