Economic Development and Global Integration: Perspectives from Vietnam
Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Come to understand ASEAN as an important regional body and focus on the issues facing Southeast Asia from the perspective of one of its major players - Vietnam.
The ASEAN Studies Program consists of two study sites - Malaysia and Vietnam - that each offer a 3-credit seminar and a 3-credit internship OR 3-credit independent study. Students can register for the Program through an individually tailored combination of the academic components for anywhere between 3 and 9 credits, either within one country or through a combination of work completed in both countries. For example, students can participate in both the Malaysia and the Vietnam seminars, plus one internship in either country.
The Vietnam seminar will begin in Hanoi and move south to conclude in Ho Chi Minh City. Students will enjoy site visits to places such as the Old Quarter in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum, Ha Long Bay, and Sapa.
Graduate students in all majors and disciplines from any U.S. university may apply. Advanced undergraduates who have completed at least 60 credits toward the completion of their degrees are also welcome to apply.
