Semester Abroad in Poland (Currently on hiatus)
The Theater Department and the Dance Program jointly developed a semester-abroad program for interested Swarthmore students based at the Silesian Dance Theatre (Slaski Teatr Tanca) in Bytom in conjunction with the Jagiellonian University of Krakow and other institutions in the vicinity. The program in Bytom provided participating students with a combination of foreign study with the experience of working in various capacities (dance performance, arts administration, scenography, etc.) within the environment of a professional dance theater company for credit. Interested students should contact Professor Kuharski for details as this program is currently on hiatus.
Semester Abroad in India
The Theater Department and the Dance Program are researching the possibility of a semester-abroad program in India in ways that would roughly parallel our existing programs in Poland and Ghana. Although the initiative remains in the planning stages, interested students are invited to discuss prospects for foreign study related to theater and dance in India with Professor Chakravorty in the Dance Program.
