This program allows students to focus on human rights/social justice, environment/sustainability, or a combination of the two. The program of study offered each semester is the "Development Studies in Latin America: An Interdisciplinary Program." Equally important to class time, ICDS provides varied experiential and service-learning opportunities as a complement to its academic programs. Students in ICDS' semester programs will take a service-learning course and participate in community work every week, complemented with reflection spaces in the classroom. Unpaid internships, volunteer work, and independent study are also available.
