Magnolia Project is proud to announce the launching of a semester exchange program with the University of New Orleans, beginning Fall 2010!
Participating students will enroll in two classes at UNO. One is a core class that all participating students are required to take, a sociology class on racial issues that uses Hurricane Katrina as a case study. Students are free to choose their second course. In addition to attending these two classes, students will earn
6 units of field study by engaging in a 20-hour/week internship at a community based organization. While there, students will engage in a community-based research project, which culminates in a policy paper.
Eligibility: Current 3rd or 4th year UC Berkeley undergraduates in good standing. Students are responsible for meeting with financial aid and academic advisers to ensure aid and credit will transfer!
Applications Due: March 3, 2010
