Looking to experience international development in action? In CET Vietnam, students roll up their sleeves to conduct service-learning internships at local philanthropic organizations. They take multidisciplinary courses, taught in English, that provide background knowledge for their hands-on experiences and challenge them to look for broader applications of these experiences. Students also study Vietnamese language and live with a Vietnamese roommate. The program's optional emphasis on Public Health attracts pre-med students, budding policy makers and students who want to study social change in the developing world. The program is open to students of all majors and language levels, including heritage learners.
