INTD 590 - Seminar in U.S. Education for International Students

(3 credits)
This course considers the role of a non-U.S. student living and going to school in the U.S. It will explore American culture in relation to the unique experience of each international student. In addition, education in America, including special education and related legislation will be closely examined. It will offer concepts to assist participants in assimilation to their environment and foster an understanding of the learning environment in U.S. colleges, schools, and communities. Issues such as academic regulations, the U.S. educational system, individual educational and vocational goals, communication skills, and U.S. customs will be explored. In this course, students attending BSU from other countries will share their experiences with traditional BSU students in order to enhance their life on campus. Partnership experiences will be fostered through classroom activities as well as field trips to museums, cultural activities in and around Boston, and events on campus.
