Discipline-Specific Resources

The backbone of the IYO program is the integration of country-specific content into academic courses at WKU. To further facilitate this, faculty who participated in the 2017 ZSEIFS to Bosnia and Herzegovina have curated brief resource guides for their particular disciplines. For further study in these areas, consult the following: 


Counseling and Student Affairs

Folk Studies and Anthropology

School of Journalism and Broadcasting

School of Professional Studies 

If your discipline is not represented by the ZSEIFS faculty, we invite you to consult the Library's bibliography for further resources and contact for guidance on incorporating Bosnian content into your curriculum.
