Social Work Course in Vietnam for Summer 2011

Unfortunately UCLA's SW program does not have the capacity to built up a international component to the program (yet) however San Jose State University just collaborated with universities in Vietnam and created a new summer course for social work students! You can get credit while traveling?! Yes!

They have invited students from other universities including UCLA! There are about 5-8 spots left as of today.


Credits:         3 credit hours. Students will enroll under the course SW 285/185.
Faculty:          Huong Nguyen and Tuan Tran (School of Social Work)
Time:              July 3 – July 23
Location:        Hanoi – Hue – Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)
Host:               School of Social Work (San Jose State University).
Partners:        Vietnam National University; Hanoi University of Education; Thang Long University; University of Labor and Social Affairs; Hue University.
Cost:              About US$ 2600 per student, not including air ticket (about US$1300, quoted by STA travel in November 2010; might increase if bought too close to departure time)
Syllabus:        Email the faculty for a copy of the syllabus that includes detailed day-to-day activities for the entire trip.

The program is co taught by a faculty member and a SW doctoral student. NO PRIOR VIETNAMESE LANGUAGE IS REQUIRED! 

I know it says that the deadline on the website has passed but they have e-mailed us and said the deadline has been extended to April 30th to allow more spaces to fill up.
