This full semester program, running for 15 weeks from September to December, provides participants with a multifaceted insight into the socio-economic changes currently taking place in China. China is a country that is noteworthy for a rich cultural heritage, an earlier record of alternative development strategies, and a growing movement towards market oriented economic growth that is producing some unique development challenges. Students will have an opportunity to study these developments at Fudan University, Shanghai, whose programs in social research are considered to be one of the best in China.
