Study abroad for two weeks in summer 2018:
MUSIC THERAPY IN CHINA: CHONGQING BURN CAMP
-MUS 374, -MUS 474, or MUS 582. It also fulfills Augsburg Experience
Music therapists benefit greatly from exploring the evolution of music from one generation to the next, the way in which music is integrated into everyday life, and its role in health, healing, and well-being in China. Through visits to hospitals, clinics, musical venues, conservatories, and community organizations that provide health related care, students experience the interplay of music and healing practices in China. Students also engage in direct dialogue with Chinese music therapists and other rehabilitation therapists. The program allows participants to reflect on their own musical roots, and to discover how their own musical preferences have developed based on cultural experiences. We will also visit other locations of interest such as The Great Wall, Old-Town Beijing, Dazu Rock Carvings, Yangtze River Cruise and more.
Applications are due March 15, 2018
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or come and talk to the Study Abroad/Away Office for more details! We are located in Oyate Commons, in the lower level of Christensen Center.

– Your participation is very valuable and desired, but voluntary.
– Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on the HR Moodle site: http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/ModernThinkSurveyFAQs2018.pdf
Human Resources recognizes that many members of our community have work that does not require use of a computer, or who may not have a dedicated office. We will be hosting computer lab sessions for employees to ask any questions they might have, get assistance with the process, and complete the survey.
Final Lab Session (NOTE location change!):
March 2—10:00-11:00 am, Sverdrup Hall 201
Should you have questions, please contact Lisa Stock (firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-330-1783) or Nicole Peterlin (email@example.com or 612-330-1602) in Human Resources. Thank you for sharing your voice!
