“This is Class!”
A phrase my students have shouted from the top of the Great Wall of China to Table Rock Mountain in South Africa. It is a reminder that learning cross-culturally is exciting and sometimes so enjoyable we can forget that we are in class.
We invite you to be a part of Nyack’s Global Service-Learning courses. Our faculty and students travel to a variety of sites around the world, studying topics in the arts, history, music, bible, theology, business, social work, nursing, and intercultural studies among others.
Your classroom might be a Bedouin camp, a medieval basilica, a tropical rainforest, or a remote village. If you are ready for a different classroom experience, consider applying now for one of our GS-L courses.
Please check out our course descriptions by clicking the trip images above, and familiarize yourself with the GS-L application process.
