                            International NGO Fieldwork in London
                          Spring Semester 2020 Course: CLS 4990-03
                           Summer Fieldwork: May 20-June 2, 2020




Course Description: students will enroll in the Spring Semester 2020 course CLS 4990-03, "International NGO Fieldwork in London" and attend sessions during the final five weeks of the semester in preparation for a 12-day trip to London/Paris during the summer. Students will learn about the history of NGOs (nonprofits) in London before traveling there to shadow employees in London-based NGOs for one week. Students will spend 10 days in London and 2 days in Paris. Students will receive the grade of "RP" (Report in Progress) after the Spring Semester, which will be replaced with an actual grade after the completion of the summer program. London was ranked as the
best travel destination in the world in 2019 by TripAdvisor and Paris was ranked #2.

The following is a sample of the types of NGOs that students will do a weeklong internship with in London:

Salvation Army International
One Young World
Community Links
Restless Beings
Innovation and Evidence
Emmaus
Prisoners' Education Trust
Hope UK
The Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies
City Harvest
Doctor's Without Borders UK

Approximate Program Cost: $2,900 (includes airfare, lodging, food, insurance, and subway transportation in London, and train expense to Paris)

Financial Aid: because this fieldwork experience is integrated with a Spring Semester 2019 course, financial aid from Spring 2020 can be used for this trip.
