NEW! POLI/GDS Field school opportunity in Thailand

CAPI, UVic's Global Development Studies (GDS) minor program, and the Department of Political Science (POLI) are delighted to announce a new initiative for UVic Undergraduate students: a field school in northern Thailand examining issues of development and the environment. This 1.5 unit, third-year level cross-listed course (POLI / GDS) will take place in May 2023 and will encompass one week of intensive classroom study at UVic followed by two weeks of experiential learning in Thailand. This field school is unique in that priority will be given to those students who are typically underrepresented in overseas opportunities, and funding to cover the entire costs of the field school will be provided for up to 7 students, and partial funding will be provided for another 3 students.
