MUS 1362: This new study abroad program is the first and only program of its kind organized by a US institution of higher learning to focus on Roma/Gypsies, the most discriminated minority in Europe. Students will become familiar with debates relating to development aid and initiatives put forth by internationally-sponsored non-governmental organizations. This course provides an excellent hands-on ethnographic opportunity to see the ways politics, economics, media, and performance informs human rights agendas. This course is highly recommended for students in anthropology, history, political science, economics, sociology, social work, area studies, and music. Please contact Dr. Adriana Helbig to learn more about the academic component of this awesome course.
