Center for Southeast Asian Studies


Southeast Asian Studies for summer, fall 

There's a lot to choose from in summer and fall 2016. Learn about the CIA in SEA, the Vietnam War, and Asian American families in three online courses this summer. In fall, 10 undergrad and grad courses are open on such topics as religion and cosmology in SEA, anthropology of Muslim cultures, studies in Asian art, politics in SEA, political Islam, gamelan and the Center's always popular Southeast Asia survey course, in addition to our five on-campus SEA language classes (and distance Vietnamese). For details, see complete course listing.  

So long, SEAYLP! 

The Center bids a fond farewell to the 50 high school students and 11 adult leaders who spent three weeks on campus in April for the Southeast Asia Youth Leadership Program 9. Congratulations to Administrative Director Rai Nihei and her team for another successful session. For more information about this US State Department program, see the SEAYLP website.  

The next best thing to being there 

What is it like to study abroad in SEA? See and hear in this video made by NIU senior Brandon Woodhouse, who went on Center associate and music professor Jui-Ching Wang's Experiencing the Arts in Bali study abroad last summer.
