FLCA-Italy: Architectural Technology

#DCinRome – Architecture Tour

For centuries Rome was thought to be the source from which culture, law, art and technology emanated. The Romans laid down the foundations of architecture that would influence design throughout Europe and some of the rest of the world. Many of these innovations are studied to this day and continue to influence and inspire further developments in art and technology. Students will tour historic Roman sites with guides and learn how these places have influenced – and continue to influence – architecture in design and technology.

Italian Culinary Experience

Students will attend the Italian Culinary Institute in Lemezia, Italy where they will gain hands-on experience cooking traditional recipes, including appetizers, main course, side dishes, desserts and beverages, using local ingredients from the region’s vast biodiverse landscape.

FLCA-SanDiego: Event Planning and Tourism- Destination Marketing

#DCinSanDiego – Convening Leaders 2024

FLCA-Guatemala: Media, Art and Design

Home and Away – Storytelling

Students will connect with Indigenous and traditional communities in Guatemala to learn, interact, and exchange knowledge and skills and develop a foundation for reconciliation at home.

While Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) is widely used across North America, it is not as commonly used within Central America. Students will visit schools, special education centers and health care facilities in Costa Rica to gain insight into the teaching methods and types of therapy used within a broader global context. Through travel to three communities, students will also explore the differences in resources available in urban versus rural areas and the impact that may have on the services provided.

FLCA-Costa Rica: Dental Hygiene

Home and Away – Costa Rica Global Learning Program

Dentistry is a valued profession in Costa Rica where local primary health care teams visit households annually to ensure the health of its citizens. However, not everyone is treated thee same. Marginalized groups have challenges accessing this care. During this FLCA experience, students will be able to see and experience these challenges and, hopefully, be able to make an impact on these population groups.
