Program Description:
Cambodia Now – January 2016

Once the strongest country in southeast Asia,  Cambodia is now focused on recovery, after decades of civil war.  Rich in natural resources,
Cambodia has lush rice fields, 
Cambodiamountainous and coastal areas, and an increasingly modern, Phnom Penh City.  We will explore the history and culture of Cambodia, including the practice of Buddhism and the Khmer Rouge period, through lecture and field trips.  We will spend several days exploring the World Heritage site, Angkor Wat temples.  The busy and always amazing Phnom Penh street life and wonderful new foods and tropical fruits offer a continuous sensory feast!
Estimated Course Fee: $3,600

Faculty Biography:


Roseann K. Sachs, Professor of Organic Chemistry and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will be leading this trip.  During the 2009-2010 academic year, Roseann and her family spent a year in Phnom Penh with the Mennonite Central Committee.  Her assignment was as an advisor and teacher in the chemistry department at the Royal University of Phnom Penh.  She studied the Khmer language privately for that year.  Her family lived in a Khmer neighborhood and travelled several times to rural Cambodia, fully embracing all aspects of living in this wonderful city and country.  She took her first group of students back to Cambodia during January term, 2012 and looks forward to introducing more students to a country and people she has come to love.
