Take a virtual trip around the world with study abroad participants

Mahidohl University, ThailandSummer’s here, and UNT students are studying and learning all over the world.  And you can join them, virtually, by reading their weblogs. 

Fifteen Emerald Eagle Study Abroad students are currently in Thailand.  They are being hosted by UNT partner institution Mahidol University, right, one of Thailand’s top higher education institutions. This will be the fifth trip under the auspices of the highly successful Emerald Eagle Study Abroad Program, which enables Emerald Eagle students from a variety of majors – who may not typically have a chance to travel – to have an international academic experience during their undergraduate years.

These students have been selected after applications and interviews.  Students are with with Dan Spears, assistant professor in the School of Merchandising and Hospitality Management, and are studying a course called Foundations of International Travel and Tourism. The course is being taught with a particular eye towards sustainability and cultural tourism. Students will have the opportunity to look at tourism issues in several global tourist destinations: Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket. 

In addition to the Emerald Eagle group, 23 other UNT programs will be around the world in Summer 2011.  Several of these students are blogging about their experiences as well, on the GLE Blog.
