Posted: February 10, 2014

Nestled at the end of the southern Caribbean’s glittering chain, are the two lush tropical islands (one nation) of Trinidad and Tobago. Immerse yourself in the rhythms, festivals, and traditions of this complex Caribbean society. Learn about this Maymester program at the information session on February 11, 2014 at 4-5 p.m. in 101 Ferguson.

The people and customs of Trinidad and Tobago emerge from a rich tapestry of race, religion, class, and culture; from various blends of the indigenous Amerindians, of Africans, East Indians, Spanish, French, British, Chinese, Syrian, among others.

During this Maymester program (May 2014), students will examine the role of colonialism, cultural history and social policy in influencing the prevailing societal issues in the Caribbean and to explore various agency programs, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and indigenous projects that are actively responding to the region’s major social service needs.

The February 11 information session will cover program logistics, requirements, costs and financial aid.
