Program Description:


This program is hosted by Augsburg College. SCSU applicants will maintain their status as SCSU students by enrolling in 12-16 credits at SCSU. Upon completion of the program, those credits will be replaced with courses taken in Cuernavaca. 
Cuernavaca is located 50 miles south of the country’s enormous capital, Mexico City. As the capital of the state of Morelos, both city and state are important in Mexican history. Students can look forward to meeting social workers in Mexico City's state agencies, health centers, and addiction service programs. During the semester, students will also have a two week exchange with Mexican Social Work students from the National Social Work School in Mexico City.
