This study tour course will provide students with an introduction to contemporary social, political and economic transformations in Myanmar.
Students will participate in preparatory seminars at ANU. Two weeks will be spent in Myanmar with the academic convener. Lectures and workshops will be held at the University of Yangon, Myanmar's premier university. Guided site visits will incorporate locations of social, historical and political importance and will provide essential context for the issues considered in the course.
This ground-breaking new course sent the first group of undergraduate ANU students to Myanmar in 2015, and is being offered in 2016 as part of the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan grants initiative.
The course details are available on the ANU Global Programs system.
