Loyola University Chicago

Vietnam Center



Do you want to understand the world from a new perspective? 


Studying at the Vietnam Center gives you the unique opportunity to explore topics in business, history, politics and development, environmental studies, sociology, and many more through a Southeast Asian lens. This section will outline our two academic streams that you may pursue:


Culture, Politics, and Development of Southeast Asia (Fall and Spring semesters)


Environmental Challenges Facing our World: Vietnam and the Environment (Fall semester only)


Global Business and Entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia (Spring semester only)


Students are able to take courses from either stream during their time in Vietnam, but this helps you get a sense for what you and your peers will be studying. You will also find information regarding your service learning or internship requirement and our exciting academic excursions throughout Vietnam and Cambodia in this section.


Your semester with the Vietnam Center will be immersive, intimate, and challenging. Are you ready?
