About EDSS 055 TR1

This course is a two-week-long immersive travel experience to China. Participants must be current high school students who successfully completed the Governor's Institute on Asian Cultures at UVM the previous summer. Following the on-campus Governor's Institute, participants will continue developing their knowledge of Chinese history, culture, politics, language, education and more. Workshops and field trips to schools, businesses, historical and cultural sites in China are integrated to develop a firsthand understanding of Chinese society. Periodic preparatory meetings are required in addition to readings prior to travel. Creating a plan for sharing knowledge with the community upon return from China is also required. Travel to China is optional and is not a requirement to attend the Governor's Institute on Asian Cultures at UVM.
