For both the Study and Service portions of the term students will live with Cambodian host families, many of whom will be Buddhist. Students will first be in the capital city of Phnom Penh and later in various locations in the rural countryside.
The first six weeks of the term will be spent studying at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. Students will practice language and culture, and learn about the history, politics and religions of Cambodia. There will also be field trips to places of social and historical significance such as the Angkor ruins and the Toul Sleng Genocide Museum, a former interrogation prison during the Khmer Rouge.
For the service portion most of the students will move to the countryside. The many non-governmental organizations in Cambodia provide service possibilities including working with children, HIV/AIDS programs and rural development.
