  Program FR - SRFreshmen - Senior 8, 12 08 12 Day, Evening and Weekend SuSummer This unique, study-abroad program allows you to experience China, the second largest economy in the world.  Through a short-term study in Shanghai, a renowned international metropolis, students will participate in a three week summer program at the International School of Tongji University.  The university experience will offer Chinese language classes, insight into Chinese culture: modern, traditional, urban, suburban, and rural life.  In addition, students will travel to Nanjing, known as the Capital City of Ten Dynasties in China's history, and then on to the city of Xian, a treasure house of cultural relics where Qin Shi Huang’s tomb resides, guarded by terra cotta warriors.  Travel continues to the city of Luo Yang, the Cradle of Buddhism and the location of the Shaolin Temple—renowned for its Shaolin martial arts that are so popular in China and the rest of the world—and finally to Beijing, the current capital of China, to visit the Great Wall, National Palace Museum, and the Summer Palace. All students will travel during first session. Students enrolling for 12 credits will continue to meet during second session to reflect and continue to learn through seminars, readings, and films and through work on video or photo journals documenting the trip.
