Program Overview

Program Description:
This is a hybrid program, combining on-line study with two weeks of in-country instruction at Renmin University of China in Beijing and Nakai University in Tiajin. The program will serve as an introduction to the Chinese Social Welfare System and the challenges it is now facing as a result of rapid economic development. By drawing on academic literature, research initiatives, and visits to Chinese organizations and agencies, you will be encouraged to compare and contrast social welfare policies and practice in the United States and China.

Setting Description:
Located in northern China, China’s capital, Beijing is home to the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, and the ‘Bird’s Nest’—the stadium that was the icon of the 2008 Olympic Games. Beijing is a fascinating city to visit, a vibrant metropolis that also serves as a microcosm of a country rapidly adapting to its role in the 21st century. Last but not least, Beijing has its own signature dish: crispy Peking Duck that’s rolled into a pancake with green onions and plum sauce.
