IPSL's Service-Learning Program in Cambodia & Thailand (SEACS)

The countries of S.E. Asia are as different as they are similar and IPSL students have a unique opportunity to live, study and serve in TWO important SE Asian countries, Thailand and Cambodia, in ONE study abroad and service-learning program! Interesting courses and hands-on service-learning experiences in IPSL's S.E. Asian Comparative Studies (SEACS) program will enrich your understanding of these two complex and historically rich SE Asian countries.

You will spend the first 7 weeks of the program in Chiang Mai, studying Thai culture, language, and society on the campus of Chiang Mai University; living near the campus in beautiful new international student housing; and engaging in substantive volunteer service for 10-15 hours per week. The last 7 weeks are spent in Phnom Penh, Cambodia either living with a Cambodian family in a homestay or in a student apartment and learning and serving alongside Cambodian youth in NGO's focused on sustainable development.

IPSL specializes in volunteer-based study abroad programming. All programs are credit-bearing and will provide an official transcript upon completion of the program. On average, 15 HOURS per week will be spent volunteering in addition to 6-21 semester credits worth of course work. Our programs are small cohorts of dedicated, service-minded students who that receive individualized attention from our staff.
