Vietnam (Winter 2014-2015)
Vietnam is so much more than you've heard. Find out for yourself in Winter 2014-2015.
The program at a glance: Vietnam is an exciting destination for a U.S. college student. This international learning community draws upon multiple disciplines - political science, literature, economics, business, and history among them - offering students a rich interdisciplinary context in which to study Vietnam.
You will spend December on campus, preparing for your travel and beginning coursework in each of the program's 4 courses. Then in January you will fly to Vietnam, where you will stay in Vietnam's three major cities: Hanoi, its capital; Ho Chi Minh City, its economic hub; and Hue, its cultural center. The three cities will provide us with rich cultural opportunities, access to inexpensive and exciting food, arts and crafts from a culture different from our own, historical sites that we have seen in Vietnam literature, history and film, and more. We will experience Vietnam as the site of a still provocative "American War," as a setting for vivid and important American and Vietnamese literature, as a quickly developing Asian economy, and as an evolving political experiment.
Courses: Students on the 2014-2015 Vietnam Term must register for all 4 courses offered on the program. This program counts as a Learning Community (LC).
