The Department of Catholic Studies and the College of Nursing invite you to develop a stronger appreciation of the culture and history of the region surrounding Puebla, Mexico, as you simultaneously learn about the healthcare system of the region and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition that underpins the provision of healthcare.
Led on this study tour by Josephine DeVito, Ph.D., R.N., Associate Professor in the College of Nursing, students will gain first-hand experience in exploring nursing and healthcare in Mexico and in applying the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and its core values of respect, compassion, caring and stewardship. The study tour will allow students to become acquainted with the daily lifestyle of the Mexican people and to understand more fully the contributions that Catholic faith and practice make to daily life in Mexico.
The tour will include visits to Basílica de Guadalupe, Teotihuacán, Museo Barroco, and other sites of cultural interest. Lectures about the intersection of the provision of healthcare and Catholic Intellectual Tradition will be facilitated by the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP), with which Seton Hall formed a partnership as part of its membership in the International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU). The course will carry three credits, and the trip will be held during Spring Break 2023 (March 3-March 11, 2023).
