Global Opportunities

As an Education student, you enjoy opportunities to participate in a variety of different global learning experiences through UNE's Global Education Program. These experiences are designed to enhance your worldview and introduce you to diverse populations. Tangier, Morocco and Seville, Spain are semester-long study abroad experiences that offer humanities courses that can fulfill your College of Arts and Sciences core requirements.

Along with the semester programs, you will find a travel course — a Spring semester course that visits Ireland — led by Dr. Lane Clarke. To enroll in this course, you must submit an application to the Global Education Program. Other faculty-led short term immersion experiences are also available to you, including trips that allow you to complete your Citizenship credit in education settings in countries such as Brazil or the Dominican Republic. You are encouraged to apply for a Global Education scholarship when applying to these courses.

EDU 242 Comparative Education in a Global Context

Dr. Lane Clarke

This course investigates comparative education theories and philosophy to examine education in different contexts and includes spending eight days in Ireland in mid-May following final exams. You extend your knowledge of society and how this is enacted through the institution of its schools. In Ireland, you visit schools and learn about Irish culture and history by touring castles, the famous Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands. Other highlights may include exploring the Ring of Kerry and spending time in Galway, Cork, Kinsale and Killarney.
