Global Study of Religion-IGSR

IGSR 300 Immersion East Side Seminar 3 Credits

The Immersion East Side seminar is designed to expose Canisius students to the diverse, unfamiliar religious, cultural, political, economic environments of the largely low-income African-American neighborhoods of Buffalo's East Side. In addition to 10 days of intensive engagement with the people and institutions of the East Side, students will complete relevant reading assignments, journal about their experiences, write reaction papers, and participate in daily reflections sessions. During the fall semester they will meet at regular times to develop and implement justice-related projects stemming from the Immersion.
