Mini-Courses

If you are a faculty member at a GETSEA institution and are interested in offering a mini-course for graduate students on a particular topic, please view the latest call for proposals for Fall 2021 mini-courses here.

GETSEA is offering three free and virtual mini-courses this spring on topics in Southeast Asian studies, open to graduate students from a wide range of backgrounds. Current graduates students at a GETSEA member institution receive first priority in admission to the courses, though graduate students at any institution who research in and around Southeast Asia may apply for admission to take a mini-course.

These courses do not offer course credit for students at their home institutions. However, students are encouraged to work with a faculty member at their home institution to count the course towards an independent/directed study/reading credit.

Mini-courses have a workload roughly equivalent to that of a one-credit course – approximately 45 hours in total, including class time, readings, and other work.

Applications for this semester are now closed, but stay tuned for more opportunities to participate in future GETSEA mini courses.
