Cultural Analysis Assignment

You will be responsible for completing a short analysis of the local culture. You will receive instructions and guidance throughout the process. Each student will receive a set of materials they can use during this assignment and in their future careers.

The assignment is designed to be a short, fun and enriching group activity. You will receive valuable feedback on your analysis, and all contributions will be compiled into the class' group observations of the culture. For more information, and to see a sample student assignment, check out the Cultural Analysis Toolkit.

During the re-entry session, you will receive feedback and guidance from the assistant director. You'll learn how to leverage this project and the skills you have developed while abroad to distinguish yourself during the recruitment process. For more information, please visit Study Abroad and Your Career.
