This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Global Citizenship is about learning to live in an interconnected world, including the social, environmental, political and economic challenges this brings.

Subject outline

Being there makes a difference. Being there while being and becoming informed makes a bigger difference. Studies enrich and enliven when combined with travel with a purpose and focus. This is a lived and experienced version of La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Students in this travel and study subject link their studies of a key issue or issues to their experiences visiting people and places relevant to the societies, eras and things they study. You will join a group with similar issues to explore and curiosities to share. Besides enrolling and paying the fee in the normal way for a normal subject, students also pay an extra fee for these subjects to cover the additional cost of travel, accommodation, some meals, excursions and entrance to museums and galleries, as relevant to individual subjects. No-interest indexed OS-FEE-HELP loans and a La Trobe Study Abroad subsidy may be available. You need to ensure your own eligibility. In 2018, at differing times, the following instances of the subject will be offered: Planning issues in the Philippines; or a product co-design workshop in Sarajevo in Bosnia.
