SPIA at Oxford
The School of Public & International Affairs introduced its study
abroad program at the University of Oxford spring semester, 2003. SPIA
at Oxford is an intensive program in political science and
international affairs which concentrates on Anglo-American politics.
Students study with leading Oxford professors in tutorials, the system
of individualized instruction which is traditional at Oxford, and
select UGA faculty also offer seminars. Participants live in the UGA at
Oxford Residential Center, a three-story Victorian mansion.
Study Abroad in Kyoto, Japan
The objective of this program is to experience the unique cultures,
politics and historical sites of Japan and the Korean Peninsula.
Through both classroom learning and extensive field study students will
gain a “global literacy” that cannot be matched by more traditional
study abroad programs. Within a single month, participants will have
the chance to visit numerous World Heritage Sites around Kyoto,
contemplate the significance of the atomic bomb site in Hiroshima,
catch a Japanese baseball game, take a ferry across the Straits of
Tsushima to Korea, and stay overnight at a Korean Buddhist temple. The
capstone experience of the program is a day trip through the
demilitarized zone (DMZ) and across the border to the North Korean city
of Gaesong. Throughout the program, the course reading and lectures
will emphasize the principles of conflict resolution and empathy as
tools for peace and social enrichment.
Study Abroad in China
This program will provide an opportunity for
students to learn first-hand about a society very
different from our own, but in many ways very familiar.
China is a dictatorship that does not tolerate political
dissent. At the same time, it has allowed a market
economy to develop in many parts of the country, it is
attempting to develop a more modern legal system,
and, based on its size and economic growth, it is now a
regional military power and a major economic force
in the world. Customers line up at McDonald’s and
military police suppress protest. This remarkable
society raises truly profound questions. Is modern life
compatible with dictatorship? Is dictatorship an aid to
a country’s development, a hindrance, or is it irrelevant?
Can a society and very diverse population successfully
absorb rapid social, economic and cultural change?

Abroad in Ecuador
The University of Georgia School of Public and International Affairs
(SPIA), Globis, and the Center for Mediation, Peace, and Resolution of

Abroad Program. Join us for this exciting program
nestled in the beautiful Andes Mountains of Quito, Ecuador.

practical perspectives, learning the root causes of conflict and
potential tools for engaging in effective peacemaking. You will explore
theories of war, violence, peace, environmental justice, ethnic strife,
conflict over natural resources, sustainable development, ethics in
peacemaking, and different approaches to conflict resolution. Building
on this theoretical base, you will be exposed to techniques, tools, and
paradigms for addressing, resolving, and transforming conflict through
negotiation, mediation, and sustained dialogue.
