Mandel School Netherlands Spring Break Study Abroad Information Session

Students can join the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School Applied Social Sciences’ International Education Programs to learn about two of the Mandel School’s three-credit study abroad courses to the Netherlands during Spring Break. The session will be held Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. in the Mandel School, Room 236.

The courses—“Mental Health Issues and Practice in the Netherlands,” and “Social Justice: Health and Violence Prevention”—aim to help students gain insight into the concept of Dutch tolerance, and social policies focusing on prostitution, drug use, substance abuse, child welfare, mental health, violence prevention, criminal justice, homelessness, and euthanasia.

About the Mandel School’s study abroad opportunities

The Mandel School will offer seven short-term, faculty-led, three-credit study abroad courses this year. These study abroad courses are open to all undergraduate and graduate students at Case Western Reserve University of any major. These international opportunities are designed to enable students to see comparative social service systems and gain new insights into the needs of people in the U.S. and abroad. The courses promote student interaction with communities, international policy makers and direct-service providers. 

Course topics include social welfare, social justice, health care, global health, mental health, substance abuse, macro social and economic issues.
