The College of the Extended University is offering a Vietnam Study/Tour program in December that will provide participants intense exposure to the country and its culture. The program is open to university students who want to earn undergraduate and graduate credits as well as individuals in the community who wish to take the program on a non-credit basis for personal and/or professional development.

The Vietnam Study/Tour program is designed to provide students with an intensive, complex analysis of the political, economic, social and cultural dynamics of Vietnam, studied within the larger regional and global context. Students will travel extensively throughout the country from Dec. 11-22, visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Mekong Delta, Hanoi, Hue, Danang, Nha Trang and Dalat. Lectures and workshops will be given in English by Vietnamese faculty at various universities in Vietnam.

Cal Poly Pomona staff on the study tour will be Michael Tran Casner, director of Asian Development, College of the Extended University, and Chris Poulson, professor of Management & Human Resources, College of Business.

The program is about $3,000, including registration in the course, round trip air transportation from Los Angeles to Vietnam, local transportation and accommodations in Vietnam.
