During the months of May and August annually, students embark on a global health and development journey to learn about challenges that pertain to food and nutrition, water and sanitation, and alternative energies in developing countries. The Southern Institute for Appropriate Technology (SIFAT) field course provides an opportunity for students to gain hands-on skills with various appropriate technologies that are used to combat malnutrition and sanitation challenges in low and middle-income countries (LMIC). SIFAT also covers topics such as microenterprise development, conflict resolution and cross-cultural training. There are two field course options for SIFAT: May (2-week course) and August (1-week course). Students can receive academic credit for both courses. The May course is a total of 6 credit hours; the August course is 3 credit hours. To learn more about SIFAT, check out their website here. To learn more about the 2018 SIFAT student experience, check out the videos below:
