CET Vietnam: Development Studies

What are the Traveling Seminars?

The Traveling Seminars are about zooming out your lens, and getting a broader perspective on Southeast Asia. These immersive, multi-day journeys get you out of the big city, seeing and experiencing other sides of life in the developing world—in the more remote sections of Vietnam, and in Cambodia. You’ll tour, visit, engage, taste, discuss, ride, and travel.

This is learning at its best.
