Vietnam: Culture, Social Change, and Development

After decades of war and isolation, Vietnam now boasts one of the strongest economies in Asia. With the help of outstanding academic and community experts, you’ll examine the interplay of Vietnam’s traditional culture and values and its recent economic, social, and environmental changes. Educational excursions immerse you in the culture and local realities of Vietnamese communities. The itinerary changes each semester, but always includes visits to temples and monasteries, nature reserves, local markets, orphanages, schools, and factories. Immediately preceding the Independent Study Project, the travel part of the program exposes you to myriad possibilities and contacts for your ISP.
