Experience Bhutanese culture first-hand at Naropa University's Bhutan Study Abroad Program. This study abroad program is not about observing another culture as an outsider -- it's about experiencing a culture from within it. During your semester at the Royal University of Bhutan, you will room with Bhutanese classmates and dress in traditional Bhutanese clothing. Choose from course topics such as Bhutanese cultural studies, environmental sustainability, leadership, education, Buddhism, and traditional arts. You will also participate in guided independent study of a topic of special interest.
Naropa University is honored to be the first and only university in North America to partner with the Royal University of Bhutan to offer an accredited study abroad program.
