Chinese History & Cultural Perspectives

This trip fully immersed college students in the culture, history, society, and economy of China. The experience was designed to expose students to China's rich diversity and dynamic vibrancy – traits largely unknown to most Americans.

We traveled from rich coastal areas to poor interior zones, studied the clash of traditions with the fast-paced race to modernize, witnessed explosive capitalism under the watchful gaze of the Communist Party, and experienced the dizzying shift from extreme urbanization to sleepy rural villages.
