ASNS2669: Field Study of Southeast Asia

Students will travel to Southeast Asia to undertake supervised, in-country field study. Focusing on a complex, real-world issue (e.g. urbanisation, women's empowerment, disability and social inclusion), students will consider the issue from a multidisciplinary perspective, including geographical, political, economic, social and cultural. While in the destination country, students will work in small multidisciplinary groups to conduct a mini research project. *Note that this unit is subject to travel and health advice at the time the unit is offered and may be delivered virtually. For more information please contact the unit coordinator.
