Three Fords are part of a Bi-Co team of students spending their summer in Mexico City at two nonprofits that support people who have recently returned from or been deported by the U.S. The internship finds them teaching English classes, hosting movie nights, preparing meals, and organizing activists across the region.
The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program is based on the belief that education rests on dialogue. Focused on teaching and learning as social, political, and cultural activities, the Education Program challenges students to explore the relationships among schooling, human development, and society as they gain and create knowledge and skills of educational theory and practice.
Students who complete one of the Education Program options are prepared to become lifelong learners, educators, researchers, leaders and agents of change. Each course includes a field experience—from two hours each week to full-time practice teaching—through which students learn to integrate academic and experiential knowledge.
