Counselor Education


This Capstone Project will examine the effects of multicultural immersion experiences and travel study programs on college students’ multicultural competency development via an extensive literature review. The author will discuss multicultural competency as it relates to critical selfawareness, global citizenship, and experiential learning. Aspects of the travel study program, such as pre-travel orientation, program format, and a framework for developing multicultural competence, will also be discussed. The purpose of this project is to discuss the multiple facets of multicultural development related to travel study programs, and to discuss better practices of administering travel study programs as well as provide a framework of ethnographic inquiry.
