THEO 33975
CSC 33975


Approaches to Poverty and Development in Chile is a multi-disciplinary course combining experiential and service learning with social analysis, and ethical viewpoints. The course is taught in Santiago, Chile at the Jesuit University Alberto Hurtado, which has many graduate and undergraduate academic resources in the social sciences, theology, and new forms of education.

The course is open to Notre Dame students who are accepted into Notre Dame’s Santiago, Chile semester abroad program through Notre Dame International. Students interested in the Approaches to Poverty and Development course are required to participate in a one-credit seminar offered at Notre Dame campus by the Center for Social Concerns the semester before they leave to Chile. The one-credit preparatory seminar (CSC 33975) 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 the Approaches to Poverty and Development in Chile course are ANTH, LAST, IIPS, KSGA. Students may ask their advisors about receiving credit from other disciplines. More information can be found in the Learning Agreement.
