Wooster in Kenya is a spring semester program that includes an on-campus, academic component (0.75 credit) and an off-campus experience in Kenya (0.25 credit) over spring break. The overall goal of the Wooster in Kenya Program is to introduce students to the history, culture and political economy of Kenya, with a special focus on environment, culture and development in Western Kenya. The class meetings prior to the trip will prepare students for the in-country experience, and the post-trip meetings will allow for reflection and integration of the experience into the students’ academic course of study. During the spring break trip, course participants will do short home-stays in two villages to learn about family and community life in rural Kenya today. Students will also work on environmental and agricultural projects facilitated by the Maragoli Community Development Foundation in order to learn firsthand about the opportunities and challenges in community-based development programs that are locally conceived and implemented. Each student will be expected to conduct a research project, using both library sources and ethnographic material, and give a post-trip presentation.
