International Social Work

Examine first-hand the differences in social work between the United States and Jamaica. Perform social services at community centers in Kingston, walk the white sands at Treasure Beach, and experience Jamaica’s rich cultural heritage with visits to markets, museums, and more.

Under the guidance and direction of Nazareth faculty, Professors Mark Primus, Jed Metzger and Amy Pete, students develop professional skills in the field through hands-on experience in group homes, community centers, and homeless shelters.

UPDATE: Applications are closed for the March 2022 program.
