Award-winning course provides a unique cross-cultural experience

University Park, Pa. -- Registrations for a  unique course has provided more than 50 students the opportunity to travel to one of North America's largest aboriginal communities -- the Anishinaabeg (also known as Ojibwe) is now available.

Each year, students spend nearly three weeks in northern Minnesota. The students are immersed in the history, geography, lifeways, culture, and worldview of the Anishinaabeg (Ojibwe). Many return home with a new appreciation for diversity, history, and culture. The ceremonies and activities are once-in-a-lifetime experiences that most students describe as life changing. 

Enrollment in this course is very limited. Interested students must schedule a pre-application interview with Dr. Bruce Martin. Contact him at bdm12@psu.edu or (814) 865-2993.
