Info Session - Cyprus: Larnaca, Nicosia - Cyprus in Transition
Friday, March 15, 2019 - 12:00pm

Join us for an info session on this Summer 2019 Education Abroad program through Portland State University:

Friday, March 15
12 - 1pm
KMC 605 (Classroom)

This 4-credit course offers the unique opportunity for a ten-day program of study in the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Participants will study, observe and experience, on location, the current state of affairs of ethnically divided Cyprus. In parallel with the formal and academic aspect of the program, students will have the opportunity to engage in experience-based learning and conduct research on different facets of Cypriot society.

Against the backdrop of its long history of inter-ethnic conflict, Cyprus is currently a country in transition. Its struggle for inter-ethnic peace and its membership in the European Union render Cyprus a concrete and fascinating case study for understanding the impact of conflict on society and culture as well as the various means, strategies, and perspectives available, and at work, for resolving inter-ethnic conflict and building a peace-enhancing democracy.

Direct contact with many of our local associates and organizations in Cyprus will also offer students the opportunity to explore prospects for returning to Cyprus in the near future to complete a practicum/internship, and/or conduct research for their project or thesis.
