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.
