Overall Experience
I learned that some of the same issues we have in the US are present in other places. I also learned there are less resources and assistance with those issues which causes problems to be bigger than they are here in the US. - University of Southern Indiana View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with USI: Mandeville - Social Work in Jamaica
It was worthwhile. I learned things about social work that I wouldn’t here in the U.S. I had one on one assessments and developed life long relationships with clients. - University of Southern Indiana View Entire Review
