Explore the past and present of China’s global interactions in its most vibrant and international city.

China is one of the most important actors in 21st-century global affairs. This program offers you the opportunity to investigate China’s current social and economic connections with different world areas, learn about its historical engagement with the U.S., and consider the effects of these historical and sociological forces on China’s culture and future development. You will study these themes alongside students from Hong Kong Baptist University through interactive course discussions, site visits in Hong Kong to NGOs and museums, and field trips across the border to mainland China and Macao. Experience the incomparable possibilities of this world-class Chinese city, with its rich history, lush and extensive natural landscapes, and exciting urban life.
