Education Abroad Has Extended Some Winter & Spring Break Program Deadlines to Oct. 10th!

Education Abroad has extended the deadline for select winter & spring break programs to October 10th!

One of the programs is UMD-Spring Break: Japan: Disaster Recovery (BSST)

Through meetings and activities with government officials, non-profit workers, students, educators, and small business owners in Tokyo, Sendai, Kesennuma, and elsewhere in the Tohoku region, University of Maryland students will learn how Japan’s experiences of disaster—both natural and man-made—have shaped society and government policy. Students will develop broad knowledge of global disaster risk reduction, management, and recovery; and will also develop deep knowledge of Japan’s March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster. Students will find that there are often no easy answers when it comes to disaster, but will finish the program equipped with foundational knowledge and skills to further explore the roles that they might play in disaster risk reduction, management, and recovery within their chosen academic or professional fields.

Students in this program participate in 2 weeks of pre-departure online and in-person coursework in the U.S.; 1 week of study and travel in Japan during spring break; and 2 additional weeks of U.S.-based online and in-person coursework, culminating in a Maryland-based service project designed by the students in order to share and apply in their own community what they have learned in Japan.

Students of all majors and all years are encouraged to apply: disaster affects all sectors of society, and students of all backgrounds can benefit from—and contribute to—this program. Regardless of your major, this program will give you valuable experience interacting with individuals from different cultures in an international setting, learning first-hand how to address real world issues and develop potential solutions.
