CDIS Study Abroad
Study Abroad Program of 2018
The program theme is "Speech-Language-Hearing Services in Peru: History, Disorders, and Delivery." We will be primary based in Lima, visiting local rehabilitation centers, universities, and museums. Local professors and practitioners will lecture on the definition of communication disorders in Peru, as well as the services provided to clients. We will travel to Machu Picchu and hike the ruins, learning about the history, language, and artifacts of the Incas. Students be housed with local families in Lima, and immersed in the culture. This experience will give students a foundation for becoming culturally competent service providers. This program requires academic engagement before and/or after travel dates.

Recap of Study Abroad Program of 2017
This course spent eight days in London and five in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. London, the capital of England, houses the British government, the royalty and is the home of the British Museum, the British Library, and many other historical and cultural attractions. It is the medical, research and educational center of the country. Students received an onsite orientation and walking tour of major landmarks of London, as well as free time to explore the city on their own. Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is in the far northeast of England in Northumberland. It is an ancient river city with Roman roots that lies near the North Sea. Geordies (as locals are called) have a dialect that is incomprehensible to other English speakers and is considered to be the closest language to 1500-year-old Anglo-Saxon left in England. Students visited the Newcastle University, founded in 1834, a leading research institution in the UK, with internationally-known programs in Speech and Language Sciences.
