Rationale for

Changes or

Exceptions:

THIS STUDY-ABROAD COURSE ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO VISIT CHINA, A NON-WESTERN COUNTRY.  IT DOES NOT REPLACE ANY OTHER COURSES BUT IS AN ADDITION TO OTHER STUDY-ABROAD OPTIONS. THE FOCUS ON TRADITIONS AND TRANSFORMATIONS WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THE HISTORY AND CULTURAL PRACTICES OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE, INVESTIGATE CHANGES IN CHINA DUE TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND CONSIDER THE IMPACT OF CHINA’S DEVELOPING ECONOMY FOR THE CHINESE PEOPLE AS WELL AS ITS IMPACT INTERNATIONALLY.

 

THIS INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES COURSE WILL ENCOURAGE STUDENTS FROM MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES AT UMM TO EXPLORE TRADITIONS AND TRANSFORMATIONS IN CHINA THROUGH THE LENS OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.  STUDENTS WILL MAKE CONNECTIONS TO THEIR FIELD OF STUDY AS THEY CONSIDER THIS INFLUENCE.
