“During my third year of my IDS degree I took a semester off and went to India to gain work experience at a local NGO. While there I worked closely with a professor in the Political Science Department at Dal who was overseeing my credit for the experience. I learned a lot both in terms of my experience aboard and the knowledge from my Professor. That time set the tone for where my life would go and I look back on it as a turning point in my life. ”Jennifer S.
