Project Bosnia & Herzegovina – DU International Service Learning Program

Applications are now being accepted for Project Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), a DU International Service Learning Program, open to undergraduates and graduates of all majors.

Project BiH provides students the unique opportunity to learn about the Balkans region through combined academic study and service based internships in Sarajevo. While deeply embedded in the history, culture, and multiple complexities of the Balkan region, students will study the buildup to and years of war before moving on to explore where Bosnia is today and the ways in which Bosnian citizens, governments, businesses, and NGOs look forward towards the future. Project BiH participants will work alongside community members, partnering with local and international organizations that are seeking to address community and regional issues. Throughout the experience, students gain professional work experience and polish their skills as global citizens; while also engaging in reflection and personal growth.

Coursework will begin on select Friday afternoons during Spring quarter and internships take place in Sarajevo for two months over the summer. Students will also be encouraged to participate in language training prior to departure. This year’s program will again be directed by Ann T. Petrila, MSW, MPA, LCSW, Director of Field Education and Clinical Associate Professor of DU’s Graduate School of Social Work.
