dc.description.abstract This project examines how people's views change after being immersed in a culture completely different from their own. The thesis records and examines the views of seven people who participated in CAPAsia III, an eleven-week field study program based in south-Asia with a focus on India, in the spring of 2003. A questionnaire was given to the participants before they left for India and after they had completed their stay in India. Moreover an interview was held to learn their impressions of India in detail. The answers to questions were analyzed to identify the changes in the views of the participants. While everyone had developed new perceptions of the world, none of them have totally changed their views. The experience they gained seems more like expanding their worldviews, not replacing their views with new ones.
