4. New OPPORTUNITY TO STUDY ABROAD: Honduras, Spring 2010

CAES Spring Semester 2010 at Zamorano University – Honduras
How would you like to live for a few months in Central America, soaking up the culture, all while earning a full semester of UGA course credit?  This program will allow you to live in Honduras for up to 12 weeks… and will cost you less than spending a semester on campus at UGA!

Students will spend one week in the hills of beautiful Santa Lucia while participating in intensive Spanish language training and living with a local host family.  From there, they will move to the campus of Zamorano University where they will interact with students from all over Central and South America.   Participants will enroll in 3 academic courses taught by UGA professors and will also participate in hands-on learning on the Zamorano campus for internship credit.

Weekend excursions and a week-long trip at the end of the program will ensure that you see much of what Honduras has to offer, including ancient Mayan ruins, the protected mountain slopes of Pico Bonito National Park, and the tropical Bay Islands on the Honduran coast.

Finally, students will have the opportunity to be matched with a US Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras.  If desired, UGA students will shadow a US Peace Corps volunteer for one week at their site in rural Honduras.
Proposed Courses:
»     ADSC 3660/3660L ‐ Warm Water Aquaculture: 3 hours
»     AAEC (HACE) 4910/6910 ‐ Int’l Agribusiness Marketing & Management: 3 hours
»     HORT 3010 ‐ Introduction to Vegetable Crops: 3 hours
»     AESC 3910 ‐ Int’l Agriculture Internship: 3 hours

*Note: All courses are taught in English

Estimated Cost:
»     $5,919 – includes: tuition, room and board, study abroad fee, estimated airfare, and immunizations  (* Note: this is the cost for the entire semester, which is comparable to many summer program costs)

»     Minimum $1,000 scholarship guaranteed to each participant
»     HOPE will cover tuition costs, if eligible

For more information, please visit and contact Carolina Robinson to set up an appointment to discuss the opportunity!

5. Maymester Course with International Focus: Disaster Management in the Middle East.

The  College of Public Health is offering a Maymester course entitled, "Disaster Management in the Middle East", DMAN 7353. For this course, two instructors will be brought in from Israel who have hands-on experience in the management of mass casualties in civilian populations. This is not a clinical but a management course, so it could be of significant benefit to students in different disciplines. The class will be offered in the morning session during the Maymester session.
