Course Plan and Objectives
: Social Work professors will lead two separate student groups to South Korea and Vietnam where all students will master the same learning objectives, based on one course syllabus, in two societal contexts.  Departure date from ISU will be the evening of March 12, 2015.

The course will present students learning opportunities to explore: (1) cross-cultural perspectives on family structure and development; (2) child development across the life span in different natural cultural contexts; (3) public policy and social interventions to promote family development in different natural cultural context; and (4) cross-cultural influences on social research or scientific inquiry. In this course students will immerse in the learning of culture, history, population; institutions of governance, social welfare, health care, and preventative services.  Lastly, students will learn to frame family and child development and service interventions in the framework of ethics and equity.

Cross Cultural Experience (Short Term Study Abroad):
