Don’t just study complex environmental, development, and globalization issues – confront them in Thailand with CIEE.

You’ll examine issues of development and social justice on a grassroots level, and immerse yourself in Thai culture through community stays, Thai student roommates, fun adventures, and more. A final group project brings your methodical, field based research into focus.
