Exploring Global Perspectives of the Human Sciences in Nepal

Nepal is known as the land of Mount Everest, or Sagarmatha as it is called locally. But Nepal is more than a mountain; it is a country full of surprises and diversity. Students will spend a month traveling through the country experiencing the bustling city of Kathmandu, the chill Lakeside district in Pokhara, and the jungles of the Chitwan region. Students can then participate in a 6-8 week internship opportunity at approved internship sites throughout Nepal. This experience in Nepal will help students to broaden their worldviews, engage with the local culture, and learn to see the world through a different lens. Students will interact with various NGO’s, participate in community development initiatives, experience tourism in a developing country, and become true global citizens.
