II. Study in New Orleans in Fall 2010!
Applications Due: March 3, 2010

The Magnolia Project is a student-initiated service-learning group that since summer 2008 has sent almost 200 Cal students to the Gulf Coast to assist grassroots organizations in rebuilding efforts post-Hurricane Katrina. Participating students will enroll in two classes at UNO. One is a core class that all participating students are required to take, a sociology class on racial issues that uses Hurricane Katrina as a case study. Students are free to choose their second course. In addition to attending these two classes, students will earn 6 units of field study by engaging in a 20-hour/week internship at a community based organization. While there, students will engage in a community-based research project, which culminates in a policy paper.

Eligibility: Current 3rd or 4th year UC Berkeley undergraduates in good standing. Students are responsible for meeting with financial aid and academic advisers to ensure aid and credit will transfer!

III. Field School Program in Peru 2010
The Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to participate in field research programs developed by some of the most recognized professionals of our academic community.

For the 2010 academic year we are offering 7 Programs:
- San Jose de Moro Archaeological Project (led by Professor Luis Jaime Castillo)
- Huaca de la Luna Archaeological Project (led by Professor Santiago Uceda)
- Ethnomusicology and Andean Culture Project (led by Professor Raul Romero)
- Ethnobiology Project: Amazonian Ethnobotany (led by Professor Fernando Roca)
- Spanish in Cusco and Inca Culture Project (led by Professors Carmela Zanelli and Luis Jaime Castillo)
- Physical Athropology: Human Osteology (led by Professor Elsa Tomasto)
- [NEW] Prehispanic Architecture Program (led by Professors Jose Canziani and Paulo Dam)

The 2009 summer session was an enriching experience. Participants were part of an international community of students and researchers, sharing academic endeavors and an intense encounter with Peruvian culture. Even though Spanish is not required, most students took advantage of the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the language in a total immersion environment.

The programs will take place fully in field from July 1st to August 1st (Except for the Ethnomusicology and the Architecture Programs: July 5th – August 5th). We offer 8 academic credits for 240 hours of practical work. For description of the courses, registration procedure and cost please see: http://www.pucp.edu.pe/dric/fieldschool/

If you have any questions, contact the faculty in charge of any project, want brochures or need additional information, contact Karim Ruiz, Executive Coordinator of the Program at: fieldschool@pucp.edu.pe
