Program Overview

Program Description:
Jointly run by Global Service Corps and the University at Albany, this program provides a unique opportunity for students to have a true intercultural experience through living and working with the people of Cambodia. Semester Option: Focused on social development in post-conflict societies, the 15-credit program combines an intensive foundations course, 11 weeks of field work with NGOs, and a final Capstone project. Summer Option: Built on GSC’s successful service-learning study abroad programs in Tanzania, GSC and University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY) are now jointly offering a nine-credit Summer Program in Cambodia. During the GSC Cambodia Program, students will gain hands-on community service project experience while living and working with the local people, in and around the capital city of Phnom Penh. Semester options are available in Cambodia.

Providing an insider’s look into social development in post-conflict societies, the 15-credit program allows students to examine the role that civil society and Buddhism play in rebuilding Cambodian communities. Students successfully completing the program will receive an S grade for internships and a letter grade (A-F) for their academic projects, for a total of 15 credits.
