This program examines the ways in which development is reshaping a traditionally rural society into one that is rapidly becoming globally connected and modern. While listed as one of the least developed countries by the UN, Nepal is in the midst of reshaping itself and is currently writing a new constitution. Sandwiched between the emerging global powerhouses of China and India, Nepal is at the center of transnational relations and is an increasingly globalized place. Nepal’s unique position makes it a compelling place to study development and social change close up. Through both classroom and field activities, you will investigate the social, political, cultural, environmental, and economic forces that are reshaping rural and urban communities. Study how development, political conflict, an emerging civil society, and global markets are all working to redefine Nepal in the twenty-first century.
