Global Research Projects, Internships, and Conferences

Students are encouraged to conduct original, policy-oriented research and projects that allow them to test their theories and assumptions on the ground. Since 1986, more than 650 students have conducted research or participated in an international internship in more than 70 countries. These projects often develop into significant projects and senior honors theses. One project culminated in an informational DVD on the history of the Somali Bantu before their resettlement in the United States; the DVD is narrated by actor Danny Glover and is being distributed within the local communities in he US where the Somalis are being resettled.
