Wintersession in Vietnam

Dec. 26, 2013 - Jan. 19, 2014

There’s no better time of year to explore Vietnam than during their sun and our gray!

The College of Forestry & Conservation, the Mansfield Center, and the Environmental Studies Department have created a unique study abroad opportunity for students to expand their knowledge and experience of climate change in natural ecosystems in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. The field-based, experiential classes focus on climate change issues as well as the culture, ecology, economy, and history of Vietnam. The program will be led by Dr. Dan Spencer of the Environmental Studies Department and is suitable for students of all backgrounds and majors.
