About

In the current competitive world, it is very important for students to have a broad knowledge of globalization and to understand the differences in culture, health, and educational systems in different countries. Beginning in Beijing, students will visit some of China's historical sites before heading inland for a remarkable journey to Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, the land of the legendary Ghengis Khan. As the adventure unfolds, students will encounter the fascinating and distinctive personalities and colorful appearances of the Mongolian people. Students will also vist Shenyang as the third city during this program. Immersed with lasting memories of contrasting landscapes and passionate people who bear a striking resemblance to the Tibetan minorities, students will return with a broader knowledge of globalization in the current competitive world and with an understanding of the differences of culture, health, and education in different countries. This course will provide an opportunity for contact with graduate students and faculty members in Chinese universities and to develop comparative and cooperative research projects. Students in this course will develop an individualized research project that they will then work to complete in collaboration with students and faculty in Inner Mongolia.  Projects will develop and be completed through meetings on site and continued communication. This course will provide an elective for senior undergraduate and graduate students in all programs and is open to all majors and minors without prerequisite.
