This course aims to help students understand the role of religion in China’s past and present, through both classroom learning and field trips. Together with Dr. Bu’s class, we will spend the first week on campus studying Chinese history, culture, and a few useful spoken phrases. Then we’ll spend three weeks traveling and studying around China - including visits to Shanghai, Xi’an, and Beijing - allowing students to experience this millennia-old civilization in the 21st century. Assignments will include tests, journaling, and a final paper.
This course satisfies: International Awareness (globe), Upper-Level, AH, and “S” course spring requirement.
