Course Details

International Team Project

ITP courses are designed to allow greater student involvement in developing the curriculum of the course than traditional courses allow. The extent of student control will be at the discretion of the individual faculty teaching these courses but ideally, students will be involved to some extent in suggesting readings, organizing speakers and presentations at NU, choosing and developing topics of study, arranging travel and accommodation logistics and setting up appointments, interviews and meetings in country. Students will be required to work in teams and to produce and present a final team project. Each course will have student leaders who will work closely with the faculty advisor. The number of leaders and responsibilities will vary from course to course. However, some typical leader responsibilities include curriculum development, setting up appointments in Chicago and in country, organizing speakers, arranging travel and accommodations, researching required vaccinations, health issues, and safety issues, overseeing copying and distribution of course materials, etc. Although being a leader involves a little more time and effort, students have found it to be a valuable academic experience (and selling point on their resumes!). If you are interested in being a student leader, please contact the faculty advisor of the country you are interested in studying to learn more details.
