IDIS 49000: Study Abroad Re-Entry Seminar (Fall 2015)

From Elizabeth Diaz, CLA Study Abroad & International Programs Director:

An international learning experience, such as Purdue Study Abroad, can have a substantial impact on your life, but those experiences risk being compartmentalized and undeveloped once you return to the U.S.

The aim of IDIS 49000 is to help students process and understand their study abroad experiences by comparing them to current literature and models of culture and communication, developing their own ideas about global citizenship, and learning to articulate and market their personal and professional development.

IDIS 49000 is a 1-credit hour seminar that meets for 50 minutes, once a week, for 16 weeks.  Participating students must have studied abroad in the past year.  Students from all programs and all colleges are welcome to participate in this class.

Students curious about the class can contact the co-instructors, Elizabeth Diaz ( or Margaret Stanny ( Instructor permission will be required to enroll in IDIS 49000.
