Summer Practicum Program in Bishkek

The Development, Environment, and Social Change Practicum consists of two major components: a practicum and a seminar. Students gain first-hand exposure to key development stakeholders - local as well as international - in the region. The modular coursework offers an inter-disciplinary scaffolding for critical reflection and thoughtful analysis. The course readings provide a theoretical and methodological foundation for the participants to delve into the connections between theory and the work of NGOs and policy organizations in Kyrgyzstan's dynamic multi-ethnic society. North American students enroll in this practicum alongside AUCA students - enabling a rich environment for diverse view-point and cross-cultural perspectives on global issues. Course readings and group project topics might include such as citizenship participation in the post-Soviet state, human rights, development and the role of NGOs in new democracies, and the effect of globalization in Central Asia. Thought leaders in the NGO and policy communities will also visit the group to bring local perspectives to the discussion. The course develops critical thinking, writing, and speaking skills as well as an understanding of the dynamic forces at work in this complex region.

Students who have not studied Russian will be offered a survival Russian course at the beginning of the program. Optional Russian, Kyrgyz, or other regional language study is available for an additional fee.
