- Program Description:
- Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors. These programs tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme and range from 10 to 20 participants, though some are larger. Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.
The program is based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines the disciplines of immunology and environmental sciences. We will discuss: The immune system - Environmental pollutants - Endocrine disruptors, heavy metals - Global warming - How immune responses are modulated by environmental pollutants - Causal links between exposure and immunomodulation, including the corresponding basic molecular mechanisms - Environmental clean-up - Risk assessment - Measures of exposure to environmental hazards - Risk perception - The precautionary principle - Sustainability. Classes will be held on the Hangzhou Normal University (HNU) campus. Students from HNU will attend our lectures/discussions, bringing their perspective to the subject. During the first days of the course, GSU students will be introduced to the Chinese language and Chinese culture by GSU faculty and, in Hangzhou, by HNU faculty.
