GROUND’s Social Science programs invite students to discover Asia’s rich culture and colourful history. A combination of educational field trips to key historical and cultural sites across the continent, balanced with program lectures, briefings, networking opportunities and homestay programs provide an enriching experience for students to learn, research and reflect on the world.
Beyond the academic side of the programs, students will have time to explore and experience the places they visit. They will be encouraged to read daily newspapers, watch local television and engage in social media networks. While exploring the areas in which they are based, they will also have numerous opportunities to interact with locals, providing for a very enriching overall experience.
Working closely with our host communities and local networks, our Social Science programs provide a platform for students to:
- Speak to local academics and NGOs that work on the issue
- Participate in classroom lectures with local and international academics
- Have discussions with government officials
- Deepen understanding of history, politics, economics, languages, cultures, food, norms, social issues and educational structures in Asia
At GROUND Asia, we understand that every group has different learning aims. That’s why we carefully tailor each of our educational travel programs to ensure that students achieve course-specific learning outcomes.
