ASIA 109 - January in China

This introductory level course uses historical frameworks and methodology to explore China in January. Through readings, lectures, site visits and discussion, the students will be introduced to the major changes in Chinese government, society, economy and culture from the earliest times to the present day. Visiting Chinese cities such as Beijing, Xian, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu and/or Hong Kong for about two weeks, the students will also experience the Chinese way of life through tasting Chinese food, conducting interactive contacts with their Chinese peers, and exercising close-up observation of social, economic and cultural activities in China. There is no prerequisite for this course, but students are required to work on a research project on a topic of their own choice. Offered occasionally. (2 Credits)
