A seven-week internship in Derry-Londonderry allows students to be directly involved in efforts of social change toward a peaceful future. The diverse perspectives gained at the internship will help students explore how society is progressing and analyze the cultural traditions and resources available for building sustainable and inclusive peace. Internship sites provide an opportunity to do meaningful work that makes a difference. Some organizations are grassroots with a local focus while others are international in scope.
Field seminars focus on human rights, equality, conflict transformation and education for democracy and help you see in action the tools used to transform conflict. Each student also carries out an independent study project on a topic of personal choice, which includes field research.
This program influenced the way that I approach talking about conflicts and the historical implications of oppression. - Yasmin, Hamline University. To read more about student experiences in Northern Ireland, click here.
