Project Description

 Hi 399

During the spring 2015 term, Laurier students toured four of China’s most famous cities for seven weeks while studying modern Chinese history. Prior to leaving Laurier, students learned about China’s history. The small class size allowed for deep discussions on topics ranging from history to politics to contemporary social issues in China. Students also researched one historical site and prepared an ral presentation so that they could act as a guide for the group during their visit. While in China, students attended classes on the campuses of Laurier’s university partners in Beijing, Chongqing, Nanjing and Shanghai. They also toured the phenomenal historical attractions of the cities, such as the Great Wall of China, guided by their Laurier classmates’ oral presentations and peers from Laurier’s university partners in China.
