Students will get to work with NGOs, neighborhood organizations, and local human services agencies Monday through Thursday. 


Participants have the option of taking both HUSR 350 and 496, or just the required 496 course for the study abroad program. The program fee will be the same for either option.

All students are expected to attend all of their class meetings and meet all class requirements (abroad and on the CSUF campus), unless there is a medical reason which prevents them from doing so, and to adhere to all behavioral norms established on their respective campuses. Additionally, they are required to follow the laws and regulations, and respect the cultural mores, national traditions and customs of the host country.
