In addition to our Sustainable Development Studies semester, we have developed semester length programs with other college and university partners.
MSID: Minnesota Studies in International Development
ISDSI is the Thailand partner for the University of Minnesota‘s MSID: International Development in Thailand. This is a great program focused on teaching students about community development through a semester at ISDSI combining coursework with a community development internship.

ISDSI also runs the Kalamazoo College: Thailand Program focusing on a deep dive into the cultures and environment of Thailand. In partnership with Payap University, the K Thailand program includes courses on Thai language and culture, as well as a courses on social justice and environmental sustainability.
