Both courses comprise three components:

      college students to prepare participants for 

      intercultural collaboration;

(2) A 12-day travel-study component (after finals and commencement) to enrich participants’ understanding

     of the dynamics of Chinese cultural landscape and contemporary arts through engagements and

     interactions with local artists and students; and

(3) A post-travel exhibition to showcase how 

     participants anchored meanings and embodied the complexity of their study-abroad experience.


    A superb entry for your resume!
