DL student spends summer abroad

Justine Haukebo, a junior at Concordia College, Moorhead, is taking part in the Summer School Abroad program. This summer there are nine Summer School Abroad opportunities offered through the Global Education Office at Concordia. Haukebo is the daughter of John and Carol Haukebo, Detroit Lakes.

Haukebo is in the "Abnormal Psychology in York, UK" program led by Dr. Susan Cordes-Green, assistant professor, Psychology.

Students will explore the beautiful city of York, England, which has played a prominent role in the history of abnormal and clinical psychology. Participants will have the rare opportunity to volunteer at York's famous Retreat, an institute founded by William Tuke that helped pave the way for the development of respectful and humane approaches to the treatment of mental illnesses. The class will become immersed in British life and spend time in London and Vienna, Austria, with excursions to Ireland and Scotland.

Summer School Abroad classes allow students to thoroughly explore a subject while experiencing a daily, up-close view of another culture. These programs are an immersive adventure where faculty and students study a Concordia course in an abroad setting, supplementing classroom content with experiential learning.
