The summer program at Jiao Tong University covers diverse topics relevant to the economic relationship between China and the U.S., including international trade and the balance of trade, the Chinese currency system, and the growth of China and its growing influence in the international sphere. We discuss the political repercussions of the rise of China.
Students travel to Zhuhai, China to take a 3-credit hour class, Ecology and Bioconservation of China (BIOL 1322), jointly taught by two professors from Trinity and United International College. During this program, students conduct field work, participate in class activities with several Chinese students from UIC, and learn Chinese language and culture. All program activities and class work are taught in English so no previous knowledge of Chinese language is required.
