Chinese History & Cultural Perspectives

*This program is scheduled to run again in 2022!

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

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