Parami Leadership Program (PLP) is a semester-long, interdisciplinary program for promising recent university graduates in Myanmar. Each semester, we select 16-18 students to study liberal arts and sciences courses with professors who hold degrees from internationally accredited universities. We teach courses in multiple disciplines, such as the sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts. We aim to nurture students’ critical thinking and communication skills through intensive research and writing workshops.
