Japan and China are two of the
most influential nations in the world today, with cultures, landscapes,
and history very different from our own. This summer program provides
a wonderful opportunity for you to gain knowledge and insights
that will aid you in your professional development as well as
learn about cultures very different from those of the West.
Summer Field Trip is built around the examination of the physical
and cultural geographies of Japan & China. The trip
is designed to cover various regions of the core area of Japan,
from Tokyo to Fukuoka, examining physical and cultural differences
and likenesses among outer regions and such well-known areas as
Tokyo. It will then jump the sea to examine the culture
and landscape in the core of Eastern China, beginning in Shanghai.
The field seminar provides a unique opportunity for students to
conduct field studies and research on a variety of critical issues
facing Japan's and China's environment, culture and economy.
Prior Chinese or Japanese language study is not necessary.
This course may be used to fulfill the general education
requirement in international education. If taken for less than 3
credits, other credits from other courses must be used to obtain
the 3 credit total.
