he 2018 International Studies Program to the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, to be conducted June 2 - June 23, 2018, will provide approximately 20 ASU undergraduate students a unique opportunity to study the visual art and culture of the largest Himalayan state, birthplace of Gautama Buddha founder of Buddhism, and home to the worlds tallest mountain- Mount Everest.

 

ASU Participants will have the chance to experience first-hand the country often called the “Roof of the World.” The program will be an academic collaboration between ASU and Kathmandu Don Bosco College. Courses will taught in English at Kathmandu Don Bosco College by both American and Nepalese faculty including scholars from the ASU Visual and Performing Arts Department (US), Kathmandu Don Bosco College , Xavier Academy, and Kanjirowa National Higher Secondary School (Nepal). The program will consist of four (4) interrelated courses of study; two  (2) seminar-based  courses and two (2) studio-based workshops. Students will be introduced to the Nepalese educational system, history, culture, and philosophical foundations of traditional Nepalese culture, and discuss current government relations between China and India, including current local trends in social media and the visual arts that are developing in urban centers. In fulfilling the objectives  of the program students will travel to various  locations in Kathmandu Nepal, and be exposed to some of country’s most enduring cultural treasures, monuments, and cultural centers. The program is unique in its commitment to support the work of both American and Nepalese students and faculty through a challenging academic program of classwork, research and fieldwork. The goal is to give undergraduates an initial exposure to academic study, research, and cultural immersion in a developing country while having an opportunity to pursue their visual research goals. At the conclusion of the course, there will be an art exhibit and farewell ceremony to be hosted by the US Embassy and United States  Education  Foundation-Fulbright  in Nepal.
