Dates: July 4th-17th, 2011
Learning about the Holocaust and other genocides in the places where they occured and from people with a direct connection to these events and/or the preservation of their memory is incalculably more motivating and informative than anything that can be done in a classroom thousands of miles away. This is the goal of this capstone: to gain a more complete understanding of genocides through interaction with the cultures in which they occured.
Sponsors of the program include:
World Without Genocide
The UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education
Vienna, Prague, Krakow, Amsterdam, and The Hague will be trekked across Europe to study the Holocaust.
Dr. Stephen Gaies, Professor
Department: Director of the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education
Campus Address: BAK 208 0502
Capstone: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Genocide, Case Studies (CAP:103-XX), 3 credits
Accommodation & Meals
Students will mostly stay in hotels arranged by the Study Abroad Center and paid for before departure. The students will pay for most meals while abroad. Only a few meals are built into the cost of the program. Students are encouraged to try different local foods.
Students pay UNI tuition and fees (in-state or out-of-state), the $65 application fee, and the study abroad administration fee to participate. There will be additional costs for housing, food, books and supplies, round-trip airfare, international health insurance, and other personal expenses.
The total estimated cost for this program is $4,500-$5,000 plus UNI tuition and fees.
To ease the financial burden on participants, expenses are broken up into four main categories.
- The first large expense is the airfare; shortly after the program is full* and has been declared closed, participants will be notified by the Study Abroad Center how to go about purchasing the airfare (normally organized by Study Abroad Center).
- The second amount due will be for any reserved activities associated with the program (e.g., housing, local transportation abroad, some cultural activities, some meals); this amount will be due before the program start, usually in the spring semester prior to the program.
- Third, the UNI tuition and fees, the study abroad administration fee, and any remaining amounts will be placed on the U-bill.
- Finally, there will be onsite expenses consisting of meals, additional cultural program activities, and any other personal expenses.
*Note that summer programs fill at different times and so airfare purchase dates will vary greatly by each program. Please contact us (contact page URL) if you have questions about a specific program.
