Application deadlines extended for India, Vietnam immersion opportunities

RELEASED: July 1, 2011

EAU CLAIRE — Application deadlines have been extended for two University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire 2012 international immersion opportunities.

Students may apply through Sept. 30 for a Thematic Interdisciplinary Experiential Semester program in Vietnam from January through May 2012, and the application deadline is now Sept. 9 for a Jan. 2-17, 2012, study-abroad program in India.

Courses in the TIES Vietnam program, led by faculty from biology, economics, geography and political science, will teach students about the rich cultural and geographic history of Vietnam. Each faculty member will teach a 3½-week project-based program concentrated on his or her subject. The program will collaborate with faculty members from the Vietnam National University and will include history and culture courses taught by local experts. Learn more about TIES Vietnam.

Six openings remain for the Winterim program in India, in which students in business and other academic programs will learn about India's role as an economic leader and export target for the U.S. as well as for Wisconsin. Participants will attend lectures by professors from Shri Ram College of Commerce and Delhi University on topics related to business, economy, politics, society and the culture of India. They also will tour cultural and historic sites in New Delhi and the neighboring cities of Agra, the site of the Taj Mahal, and Jaipur, known for its palace, stone observatory, forts and monuments.
