Unit rationale, description and aim

The Development Education Immersion Program (DEIP) involves being located for a short period in the culture and reality of communities in a developing country. Students' lives will be enriched and challenged by a community-based learning experience in which they will have the opportunity to interact with development practitioners and locals, and experience activities of cultural and historical significance. The focus of the unit is to study and reflect on various approaches to humanitarian and development work. Students will emerge from the experience ready to apply what they have learnt in their future careers.
