Sign up for the fall course SSC 3820 Global Studies Fieldwork and travel to Uzbekistan in October 2023.

This is absolutely a unique and a life-time opportunity to travel to and study in three 2,500-year-old old cities on Uzbekistan’s Great Silk Road: Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand. 

You will have fun travelling but also earn 3 credits for GEU course SSC 3820 Global Studies Fieldwork. 

You will see many fascinating historical sites, enjoy great Central Asian hospitality and cuisine, learn about many crafts (silk paper, ceramic). 

This is going to be a small group of no more than 15 students from all VTSU campuses. The lab fee that covers most of the expenses on the trip is $3,000.

If you are interested, contact Dr. Alexandre Strokanov email
