Explore South East Asia with IPSL
In the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand is a land of contrasts; gorgeous countryside of rice fields, mountains, hills and ancient temples; bustling city life in the capital of Bangkok; and beaches world famous for diving and snorkling. IPSL students in Chiang Mai can study Thai, gender and sexuality, human rights, and other courses focused on social justice and refugee rights.
IPSL students spend a fall or spring semester in Chiang Mai, studying Thai culture, language and society at Chiang Mai University and engaging in substantive volunteer service in a wide range of community development agencies and NGO’s. The volunteer service immerses students and deepens their understanding of Thai society. Opportunities to study the Thai language and to live and study with other international students as well as to experience a short homestay with a Thai family makes for a multicultural experience that IPSL participants never forget.
