Program Overview

The SIT Vietnam study abroad program examines economic and social development patterns in the cultural context of one of Southeast Asia's most fascinating and rapidly changing countries. After emerging from decades of war and isolation, Viet Nam today is experiencing tremendous growth and, over the last decade, has boasted one of the strongest economies in Asia. Concurrent with this growth, the country has been wrestling with critical issues such as sustainable resource management, intense urbanization, changing family and marriage patterns, and integration with global networks and institutions.
