SOC 350I - Modern China, 3 credit hours


Would you like to learn about contemporary China, often seen as America’s future rival in the world? Many Americans including national leaders know very little about China. Information related by the news media is not only frequently inaccurate but also misleading. In this fun and informative class, you get to learn about the Chinese culture, its people, and its achievements. You also explore the complex processes causing the rapid change in China and the pressing social problems its people face every day. You will also become aware of how the solutions to these problems affect issues Americans care about such as American trade imbalance with China, intellectual property protection, energy consumption, environmental pollution, nuclear nonproliferation, and global war against terror. Participation in field trips to local cultural attractions is required. Ideal for students who seek to work in areas of international business, politics, and comparative studies in the humanities and social sciences.
