Welcome to Southeast Asia, the land of contradictions. At a pace and scope not seen before, the ancient structures, diverse cultures and delicate ecosystems of this region are being clashed against the pressures of new technology, rapid urban development, and foreign investment. Don’t miss the chance to interact directly with these impressive shifts as part of this intensive group study program travelling through Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia.
This program’s itinerary is designed to maximize students' exposure to local natural and urban environments; as well as the social, political, and environmental problems that are occurring in Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia. The primary objective will be for students to understand issues of development and environment in each of the destination countries, as well as their evolution, regional differences, and adaptations to the rapid changes brought by globalization.
Participants will engage with course topics through direct observation, lectures, fieldwork, and communication with local university contacts.
