Summer Study Abroad in Southeast Asia

Spend a summer in Chiang Mai, the cultural heart of Thailand famous for its temples, enduring traditions, jungle-covered mountains complete with hill-tribe villages and elephants. Chiang Mai combines the best of Thailand as a modern city with great shopping and nightlife but also a place that has kept alive the traditions and customs of this diverse and fascinating culture.

This program can be taken as a three week (3 credits) or six week (6 credits) experience. While we encourage all students to undertake the full program of 6 weeks, we also understand that due to individual situations some students may not be able to participate in the longer program. As a result the program has been designed as two ‘stand-alone’ independent 3-week modules. Students wishing to take Thai Language must participate in two modules as the course is designed to stretch over six weeks of study.
