Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Nepal: Development, Gender, and Social Change in the Himalaya

 

 

Witness Nepal’s challenges in balancing tradition and modernity, while negotiating economic, political, and social change in a dynamic period of its history.

 

 

WHY STUDY SOCIAL CHANGE IN NEPAL?
In the past few decades, Nepal has seen tremendous changes in development, discourse surrounding equality and inclusiveness, and human and civic rights. Live in the Kathmandu Valley, home to seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, and learn from experts, activists and academics about development, gender and social change. Visit organizations and institutions to understand how they work with government and nongovernment agencies to make meaningful change in society. Learn Nepali from expert teachers in small, dynamic classes. Connect with NGOs, INGOs, and bilateral and multilateral donors. Visit the Chitwan National Park in the plains to learn about conservation, community development and collective action. Then, trek from village to village along ancient Himalayan trade routes going as high as 13,000 feet to see community development efforts as well as Nepal’s remarkable biological, geological, and cultural diversity. In the final four weeks, research a topic of your choice while conducting independent field study, or gain professional skills in an international work environment as part of an internship.
