Travel to Beijing to understand China’s phenomenal rise in the world economy and international arena. The program will examine the notion that the twenty-first century is “China’s century” through the lens of urban transformation as well as people’s lives on the ground. By observing the paths of development in Beijing, students in the program will learn about the economic, social, and political processes of globalization as well as the problems arising from it. The program includes lectures, guest lectures by local experts, readings, discussions, and more than a dozen field trips.
