SUMMER PROGRAMS

Beijing

During the seven weeks in China, students will work to document the Changing Face of Urban and Rural China in the city of Beijing and the Rural Township of The Pearl River Valley, just North of the Great Wall. We are living at a pivotal point of World History. Over 50% of human population is living in Urban Environments. JMU students are invited to work on project teams to explore the massive urban and cultural change that has occurred since the announcement of the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Beijing's extensive highway system did not exist and bicycles were the main source of transportation before 2008. These changes have substantially effected Chinese life.  For more information, visit: http://www.jmu.edu/international/abroad/programs/jmu-beijing-base.shtml
