ISDI Sustainable Development Studies in Thailand

Academically challenging, field based, direct learning in Thailand.

Open to any major, the Sustainable Development Studies semester is hands-on and experiential, designed in collaboration with local communities in Thailand. Our unique Expedition Field Courses travel and study throughout Thailand, from remote hill tribe villages in the North to the islands in the South. Expedition Field Courses are hands-on learning—assignments include everything from a coral reef survey to ethnographic research.

Students live with local families, and backpack, sea kayak and travel through the landscapes they are studying.
