This will be the fifth year that the University of Toronto has offered a summer course in Beijing and Tianjin, China. Students will earn a full-year sociology credit in four weeks while living and learning in Beijing, China’s massive capital city. The second half of the program will include a 10-day visit to Tianjin. This course will benefit students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the characteristics of Chinese politics, economy, culture and society.
The program will be hosted by Capital University of Economics and Business in Beijing and Nankai University in Tianjin. There will be opportunities for in-class discussion with local students about the course topics. The group will be staying in residence at CUEB and in a campus hotel in Nankai University with easy access to the classrooms and will have use of some campus facilities and services.
