This course is open to Notre Dame Students who have been accepted into Notre Dame's Santiago, Chile semester abroad program through the Office of International Studies.
Approaches to Poverty and Development is a multi-disciplinary course combining experiential and service learning with social analysis, theological reflection and ethical viewpoints. The seminar is taught by Professor Isabel Donoso at the Jesuit University Alberto Hurtado in Santiago, Chile, which has many graduate and undergraduate academic resources in the social sciences, theology, and new forms of education.
THEO 33973/CSC 33973 (1.0 credit) serves as the required orientation course for all students who will participate in the Approaches to Poverty and Development course offered through the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH) in Santiago, Chile. The course will provide students with information regarding many of the themes and topics that will be explored further in the UAH course. The one-credit preparatory course will provide the necessary information to facilitate a richer and more meaningful experience while in Chile. Notre Dame departments that accept the five credits (3 graded, 2 S/U) from Poverty and Development are ANTH, LAST, IIPS, SOC, and THEO. The course is offered through the Center for Social Concerns. More information can be found in the Learning Agreement.
