Climate Change in Vietnam
Plan for your Summer 2019 Adventure Now!
Applications available Fall 2018
Program Dates: May 8 - May 31, 2019
The College of Forestry & Conservation, the Mansfield Center, the Climate Change Studies Program, 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 Society and Conservation Professor Dr. Jill Belsky and Forestry Professor Emeritus Dr. Steve Siebert and is suitable for students of all backgrounds and majors.
Credits for the program will appear as part of your spring tuition. This means that, if you take a full course load during spring, there will not be any extra credit fees associated with the program, and most spring financial aid can apply to the program cost. Cost is currently estimated at $4450 plus airfare. However, students who apply in Fall 2018 will be eligible for an Early Bird Discount of up to $500!
