Vietnam is an exciting destination for a U.S. college student. Two countries that were at war thirty-five years ago now have diplomatic and cultural ties, facilitated to a great extent by economic ones. Given that old enemies are now civil, our relationship with Vietnam can serve as a model for similar troubled global relationships. This conflict and subsequent reconciliation are important for all of us to study and to witness first-hand.
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.
