Program Description

City of Future: Fashion, Architecture, and Urban Culture of Shanghai

Dates: July 5 - July 29

Summer (4 weeks), 4 credits

Prerequisite: 2.8 minimum GPA.
No prior knowledge of Chinese is required.

This four-week summer immersion program combines classroom study of Chinese language and culture with field trips to provide students an opportunity to observe the radical urban change in China through the dynamic global city of Shanghai.

During their stay in Shanghai, students complete two courses: a seminar-style class focusing on contemporary Chinese urban, cultural, and social development and a Chinese language course (all levels offered). In addition, students are encouraged to work on an urban research project addressing an issue such as socioeconomic class, housing, and consumption in a specific community in Shanghai.
