Explorations in Nutrition and Culture
Are you a
nutrition student who is itching to go abroad, but can’t seem to find a place
for it in your busy schedule? This is a problem many nutrition students run
into. Class scheduling is rigorous with the amount of classes nutrition majors
have to take, and many times, students miss out on studying abroad because they
feel like they have limited time.
Explorations in Nutrition and Culture is just what you might be looking for.
This study abroad program is short, sweet and to the point. Students leave in
June, stay in Italy for 4.5 weeks, and head home at the end of July. The
program begins in Venice, travels to the Italian Alps, and the students end up
studying at Ascoli Piceno, a school with which UNH has a partnership where
students take classes. In Summer 2012, students will be able to take a
Mediterranean Diet and Culture class (NUTR 595), Intro to Italian studies (ITAL
425), and an Interdisciplinary Field Seminar in Italian Culture (ITAL 681).
These classes can satisfy the Discovery World Culture or foreign culture Gen.
Ed. So if you find the romance of beautiful, ancient Italy appealing and want
to learn more about its quirky culture and delicious food, check out this
program. Information meetings are scheduled, and applications for 2013 are due
November 30th. Visit UNH in Italy Study Abroad Program for more information!
