The Department of Sociology and Anthropology strongly encourages an international experience during the junior year of study. After the completion of the courses SOCL201/101, SOCL316 and SOCL302, would be the ideal point in the program to participate. Criminology concentrates note the third option in England.
The BCA “Bridge the world, program, Connect for peace, Act for justice” has proven to fit neatly with our department’s mission. In particular, we endorse the “The Global Conversation Program” that includes four BCA study centers: Dalian, China; Derry, Northern Ireland; Strasbourg, France; and Xalapa, Mexico (GPA required=2.6).
Here is a recent example from the China location (no previous experience in Chinese required!):
