Summer Chinese Culture Program (2015)

Feeling China: An Exploration of Chinese Culture

(July 13 – July 31, 2015), Shanghai

 

 

 

For thousands of years, China has been an important contributor to the diversity and splendor of the world’s civilization. Despite its acknowledged significance as an economic and political power, much less is known about the country, and much more is to be explored, to be felt, to be understood and to be appreciated. In this increasingly interconnected world, to maintain a truly global perspective, an understanding of China is just indispensible.

International students on this program shall attend 18 well-knit lectures (all in English), as well as 3 substantially-contented workshops. Overseas students and SISU students shall work together on the program toward a better understanding of China, Chinese culture and how it relates to the world.

Shanghai is one of the largest cities in China on the eastern coastline. Located in the downtown of this affluent, exciting and glamorous city, SISU is next to many of the great cultural, social and entertainment attractions which Shanghai has to offer. We look forward to having international students on SISU campus for “Feeling China: An Exploration of Chinese Culture, 2015”.
