This program involves a 150-hour field placement experience at health and human service agencies in which students are involved with ongoing recreational therapy programs and services. Students enroll in one course for three credits, choosing between:

Students will gain an understanding of the nature of social services in post-communist settings, as well as the nature and challenges of services for people with disabilities in Serbia specifically. Students will intern with two different social service agency placements for a minimum of 14 days each, meeting with the program director weekly for individual clinical supervision discussions based on their observations and experiences. The program director will also visit and observe students routinely at placements throughout the entire program.

Students who have already taken these courses or have special needs due to their major/disciplinary requirements may discuss the possibility of an independent study or other alternative with the program director prior to applying to the program. If you have any questions about the academic program, or would like to request syllabi for courses, please contact our Program Manager.
