This course exposes students to a wide array of issues encountered in modern Vietnam, ranging from socio-cultural, politico-economic aspects to questions of nationalism, international relations, and globalization when examining the country in its regional and global contexts. Throughout the course, students are introduced to basic concepts in social sciences and humanities that will allow them a better understanding of their social environments as well as urge them to assess others interpretations with an open but critical mind. The course helps to raise students socio-political awareness and cultural identity, encouraging them to grow up as responsible national and global citizens.
