Cambodia Winter Term (2012-2013)
The Cambodia Program is expected to run again during the 2015-2016 academic year.
A Winter adventure to the heart of Southeast Asia.
Study the history, culture, language and literature of Cambodia, a nation which has been a crossroads of Asia for centuries. With visits to the temples of Angkor Wat and the cities of Phnom Penh and Siem Riep, this program will incorporate service learning within Cambodia with coursework that invites you to consider the rich blending of cultures to be found in this Asian jewel.
The program offers a wide array of Gen Ed options, including LC, PL, PH, PS, G and Service Learning credits. After 5 weeks of courses on campus in Rock Island, the group will travel to Cambodia in January, where the students will travel with three Augustana faculty as well as local experts on Cambodian Art and Culture. Service learning projects will include teaching English and working with local schools. Students on this program will be encouraged to blend what they learn in the classroom with hands-on experiences among the Cambodian people.
