Deadline: February 1 (early bird) or March 1, 2020
Please invite your students to apply to a new summer program we will be offering in Siberia this coming summer 2020 through the UCSD Global Seminars Programs. Students will enroll in Summer Session I (June 28-August 2) and receive credit for two 4-unit courses, LTEU 152 and 153. LTEU 152 is an Ethnic Studies course focused on the Buryats, Indigeneity, and Identity, while LTEU 153 is a multidisciplinary Environmental Studies course on Lake Baikal. Both courses will include a Russian language instruction component, but no prior knowledge of Russian is required. The courses will be rich in experiential learning. We will be based in Irkutsk and partner with students and specialists at Irkutsk State University, but we will also travel to Moscow, Petersburg, Olkhon Island, Balagansk, and Ulan Ude. We will work with the Great Baikal Trail organization and spend a night out on the trail by the campfire. Let me know if you have any questions. For more information, you and your students can access the program link below, contact me by e-mail (below), or contact the Global Seminars Director Jim Galvin at the phone number listed below.
Thanks for your interest and for sending us your students!
