Located in the countryside of East Sussex, England (to the south of London), Herstmonceux Castle is the site of Queen University (Canada)'s own Bader International Study Centre. The Castle becomes a home from home for students from all over the world who go there to share an unparalleled educational experience, characterized by small class sizes, integrated hands-on field studies, and a diverse faculty and student population.
Summer 2017 program
Carroll University's Associate Professor in Communications, Dr. Rebecca Imes, will be teaching in the Global Health and Disability program (Carroll students can also take courses in their liberal arts categories like Psychology, Political Science, Art History, Theater History, etc.). It is a 7 week program and students take 3 courses over 6 weeks (the first week is orientation). In Global Health and Disability, each course runs for 2 weeks.
There are two streams of study in Global Health—one called Community Engagement and one called Professional Perspectives. They limit the number of students in this program to 30—all 30 students take Disability Studies: Global Issues, Research and Policy. Following the initial course, half the students are in Community Engagement (Global Perspectives in Healthcare Innovation/Global Disability and Sport) and half are in Professional Perspectives (Global Studies of Social Inclusion, Community Participation and Mental Illness/Health Communication in a Global Context).
The students live in dorm-style housing on the castle grounds (as do the visiting faculty) and eat at the castle dining room. There is a free castle mini-bus that takes students all around the region, including trips to the train station as London is just 90 minutes away by train.
The course costs include three courses, room and board at the castle, and field study experiences. The students travel to Geneva, Switzerland and visit the World Health Organization, the International Labor Organization, the UN, the museum of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent.
