Virtual Study Abroad in GWS

Circle of Care for Global Health and Human Rights

Examine the relationship between borders, global health, and human rights through a circle of care and communication with GWS lecturer Araceli Alonso and participating professionals from each country.

This course covers three key territories on the route of migrant women from West Africa: Spain, Morocco and Nigeria. The new virtual program allows students to address issues of sex-trafficking and human rights violations by engaging with individuals and organizations on the ground in Spain, Morocco, and Nigeria in an online format.

Paying for Summer Courses

Summer tuition can be expensive. Every spring, Summer Term awards scholarships to cover a portion of tuition costs, so if you are considering summer courses, be sure to apply for a summer term scholarship in WiSH.

As you make plans, weigh the tuition costs, your financial aid options, and the potential benefits of taking a course or two during summer.
