The China Study Abroad Program
The China Study Abroad Program was established by the History Department in 2005. In collaboration with the Center for Global Education and the Cor Program, the History Department regularly offers an interdisciplinary Study Abroad course: HIST 310 China: Tradition and Transformation, which includes a summer trip to China. In addition, the History Department has sponsored other China study abroad projects. For example, our student-faculty China field study project in 2009-2010 won a $31,000 grant from the AsiaNetwork and the Freeman Foundation.
Past student participants in the program came from a broad range of majors, including art, biology, business, chemistry, computer science, education, foreign language, history, literature, mathematics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Several participants revisited China after their trip. Three of them went back to China to teach English language.
