During this project-based study abroad course, students will work directly with a client to complete a project aimed at meeting the client’s needs. Participants will spend roughly seven days in Chiang Mai, Thailand over spring break working with the program’s client, BEAM Education Foundation. BEAM provides education for migrants and refugees in Thailand with the goal of increasing their access to higher education. We will also receive support from VIA during the course, a non-profit organization that specializes in cross-cultural understanding and transformative education programs in Asia and the United States.
