Hi Maria,
Would you please share this information with English majors and with the
Africana/Black Studies group?  Joanna Kirk is also offering S/M/SOCL 105,
Global Social Change at the same time, so students without the
prerequisites for the Biology course can go this year.  We will be sharing
many of the same site visits and experiences.

This Thursday at 1:00 in ISC 136, there will be an information session for
both SOCL 105, Global Social Change and BIOL 344, Biology and Global
Health, offered simultaneously in Ghana this summer.  These programs will
run from May 19 to June 19.  The approach will be largely experiential and
applied learning, and site visits will include schools, hospitals,
businesses, farms, markets, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and
community development projects.  Embedded in the course is a research
experience working with neglected tropical diseases in a marginalized
community on the outskirts of the capital city.  Total enrollment across
both classes will be capped at 16-18. With applications being considered on a
rolling basis, early applications stand a better chance of acceptance.

More information, including cost, is available on the Geneseo Study Abroad
web site, or from Susan Bandoni Muench (Bandoni at geneseo.edu) or Joanna Kirk
(Kirk at geneseo.edu).  If cost is the only potential barrier, please consult
the Study Abroad Office, where they can help you figure out your financial
options. In terms of cost, this program offers good value, in that the
program fee includes accommodation, transportation, and all site visits
(including a safari!) and other class activities, but also many meals.
Additional purchases, whether food, souvenirs or gifts, are economical, due
to the low cost of living in Ghana relative to the US.
