Who, When, and What Courses Will We Study?

The Foothill De Anza Community College District is offering a third Study Abroad program to Saigon during the Summer of 2003, in conjunction with four-year schools like UCB, UC Davis, SJSU, and Community College Districts in San Jose and Sacramento. We will depart SFO on or about 2 July and return OA 6 August, with all instruction in Saigon (TPHCM). You may extend your return if you wish.

Courses will include Composition and Literature and Critical thinking classes (EWRT 1A, 1B, 1C, EWRT 2, ELIT 10); and International Business and Global Economics, both with a focus on doing business in Asia, Vietnamese Intercultural Studies, and Vietnamese Language and Culture. All Students in good standing at their home institutions will be welcome.


Where?

On arrival in Viet Nam, we will go to Khach San Dong Khanh, a first class, air-conditioned hotel on the edge of the Cholon District in Saigon (TPHCM). After settling in, you will take a city tour of Saigon, a booming city of 8 million residents, currently undergoing extensive economic expansion.

During your five weeks in Viet Nam, in addition to your studies, you will go on cultural tours throughout the country including trips to the beaches of Vung Tau, the tunnels of Cu Chi, the Cao Dai Temple/Center in Tay Ninh, and Can Tho in the Delta. Classes will be held four days each week; cultural tours will be held every Friday, and some weekends. There will be opportunities for you to travel to Hue, the Imperial Capital of Viet Nam, or other locations.


Who will the Teachers Be?

Faculty will be Ms. Rowena Matsunari from De Anza College in Cupertino CA, and, Mr. Arthur Quach, an Economics faculty member from Foothill College in Los Altos.

We will have lectures by guest faculty from Universities in Viet Nam, particularly the University of Forestry and Agriculture in Thu Duc.

Students will be required to take two courses, including the Vietnamese Life and Culture Course. You may take three courses if you wish, and you will receive college credit for all courses on your transcript. You will also have an opportunity to interact with host country students, and learn more about them.


How Do I Get More Information, or Reserve a Place?

This trip will be limited to the first 40 participants (You must have a green card or a passport) who show an active interest in going, matched by February 2003 with a deposit of $450.
