The following syllabi are representative of this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term. The syllabi can be useful for students, faculty, and study abroad offices in assessing credit transfer. Read more about credit transfer.

The Science and Policy of Climate Change – syllabus
(ECOL3010 / 4 credits / 60 hours)
This course unpacks the basic science of the climate system by examining the state-of-the-art science collated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and through regular engagement with scientists and researchers. Students learn how to read scientific papers and analyze the policy process at local, national, and international levels. They also consider the tangle of acronyms - such as IPCCC, UNFCCC, and CDM - that define international policy discourses on climate change. The course looks at smaller scale, regional initiatives such as California's state-level efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and its investments in renewable energy; Morocco's green plan; and Plan 2020.
Political Economy and Environmental History: 1492 to the Present – syllabus
(ECON3010 / 4 credits / 60 hours)
This course analyzes the development and history of modern capitalism on a global scale. Topics of consideration within this context include state formation, war, imperialism, technology, energy, environmental change, economic crisis, and “long waves of accumulation.” There is a particular focus on post–World War II developments, including the rise of Keynesianism globally; the role of socialist economies; the political economy of the Cold War; Third World development; the global crisis of profitability in the 1970s, the resultant economic restructuring, and the turn toward neoliberalism; the collapse of communism; the acceleration of neoliberalism and its deepening crisis; the rise of developing economies such as China; and the possibility of alternative economic models.
Comparative Issues in Food, Water, and Energy – syllabus
(SDIS3070 / 4 credits / 60 hours)
This course looks at agriculture and energy, and the attendant resources upon which those sectors depend. Students visit farms, fishing communities, food processors, and food transportation companies, while examining the history and political economy of food production in each country visited. A similar approach is taken in examining the energy sector; fieldwork complements detailed studies of geography and political economy as students encounter the natural sciences, companies, technologies, and regulatory arrangements that constitute “the energy sector.” The course also examines the technologies of emerging alternatives such as solar, wind, and tidal power.
Fieldwork Ethics and Comparative Research Methods – syllabus
(ANTH3500 / 4 credits / 60 hours)
This course enables students to understand and benefit from experience-based learning processes. It provides students with skills related to gathering, analyzing, and interpreting information from a range of sources, maximizing the knowledge provided by local contexts. The course intends to assist students in assessing their own cultural assumptions and in understanding people from different cultures. Students are familiarized with the World Learning/SIT Human Subjects Review Policy. The seminar provides a framework for a cumulative project involving data collection and qualitative research undertaken in each of the countries visited.

Sites

excursions

Sites

Please note that in order to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, program excursions may occasionally vary.

United States: San Francisco

(2 weeks)
Wind turbinesStart your examination of climate science in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here, you will explore the fossil fuel industry and California’s burgeoning renewable energy sector involving wind, solar, and geothermal energy. You will consider the health of San Francisco Bay and examine the politics and economics of aquaculture. South of the city, you will study the state’s massive agricultural sector, both organic and chemical based. You will also meet activists struggling to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, Hoi An, Hanoi

(4 weeks)
You will then travel to Vietnam, a country highly vulnerable to climate change. You will spend your first week here in Hanoi, the capital city of this one-party, nominally socialist country. Here, you will learn about Vietnam’s environmental and climate change policies, including its position on renewable energy. You will meet with NGOs, academics, and government officials to get both “official” and alternative perspectives on how Vietnam is planning, or is not planning, to cope with climate change.

After that, you will head to Hue and Hoi An, in Vietnam’s Central Coast, where you will have a chance to see firsthand the impact of climate change on the interrelated socio-ecological systems of food, water, and energy of this agricultural region. You will learn about the consequences of highland dams for downstream communities and ecosystems; visit Tam Giang Lagoon, the biggest fresh water lagoon in the region, to learn how changing climate patterns are affecting aquaculture farming; and travel to the Cham Islands to learn about their strategies for adapting to climate change.

In Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage site, you will live with a local family, join with farmers who are part of a budding organic farming movement in the region, and learn about rural-urban dynamics and the ability of coastal cities to adapt to the effects of climate change. Finally, you and your group will travel south to Ho Chi Minh City, the largest city in Vietnam, where you will reflect on your time in Vietnam.

Morocco: Rabat, Casablanca, the Atlas Mountains

(4 weeks)
Students sitting in a lineNext, you will travel to Morocco. You will be based in the port city of Rabat, Morocco’s capital and political and diplomatic center, and will travel to other important sites within the country. You will visit Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city and economic center, and will have an excursion to the Atlas Mountains, where you will study issues around water and development. Further north, in Tetuan, you will visit a major wind farm.

You will also enjoy a weeklong, mid-semester break while you are in Morocco.

Bolivia: Cochabamba, La Paz, Lake Titicaca

(5 weeks)
Home in BoliviaYou will conclude the program in Bolivia, a politically complex country. In 2010, Bolivia passed a law that recognizes the “rights of Mother Earth,” yet the country’s economy is still structurally dependent on mining and exporting natural gas. During your time here, you will be based in Cochabamba, one of Bolivia’s most socially progressive cities and, in 2000, the location of successful protests against the privatization of water. You will go on excursions to La Paz, Bolivia’s seat of government, and Lake Titicaca, which since 2000 has experienced consistently receding water levels because of changes in climate.

Homestays

homestays

Homestays

The homestay is an integral part of the SIT experience. During your homestay, you’ll become a member of a local family, sharing meals with them, joining them for special occasions, talking with them in their language, and experiencing the host country through their eyes. Homestay placements are arranged by a local coordinator who carefully screens and approves each family. Students frequently cite the homestay as the highlight of their program. Read more about SIT homestays.

You will live with a host family for between two and four weeks at each program site, with the exception of the first location. Homestays are the primary form of accommodation on the program; other accommodations can include guest houses, hostels, dormitories, and/or small hotels.

Family structures vary in every place. For example, the host family may include a single mother of two small children or a large extended family with many people coming and going all the time. Please bear in mind that the idea of what constitutes a “home” (i.e., the physical nature of the house) may be different from what you expect. You will need to be prepared to adapt to a new life with a new diet, a new schedule, new people, and possibly new priorities and expectations.
