Global Course Extension in India: Information Session


Join us for an information session to learn about the August 2024 faculty-led trip to Chennai, India, for SW785 Global Course Extension. The information session will cover what to expect from the course, travel and itinerary basics, and how to complete the application. The session includes time for Q&A.

Based at the Madras Christian College in Chennai, India, this course draws on the "grand challenges" facing social work professionals encompassing a broad range of issues, from eliminating racism or caste and family violence to closing the health gap and reducing extreme economic inequality. 

The course is intended to be both locally grounded and explicitly comparative and combines both practical fieldwork experiences with coursework and structured, critical reflection at the Madras Christian College. This course will provide students with an intensive introduction to the ways in which the social work profession is organized in India, key issues confronting vulnerable populations, and how the issues in India compare with the United States. 

A Zoom link will be provided to registrants closer to the event and the info session will be recorded for those who cannot attend live. If you would like a copy of the recording, please make a request to
