Shenzhen, China Study Abroad Opportunity
The Department of Public Administration has established an intercession study abroad program in collaboration with Shenzhen University in China. Shenzhen University is the only comprehensive university in Shenzhen, a city of over 12 million people that was the first special economic zone in China. Binghamton University students will study Chinese political, social and economic institutions with faculty from Shenzhen University and the program director, Professor Thomas Sinclair. In addition to instruction in a seminar format, Binghamton University students will work on a project related to an issue of concern to local governments or community-based organizations in China. The students’ itinerary will also include time in other major Chinese cities. Previous trips have included travel to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.
Students enroll for 3 credits in either PAFF 568 (graduate level) or PAFF 361 (undergraduate level). A minimum of 10 students are required. Students will have one month to complete their final project papers after they return to the United States.
Students interested in the China Study Abroad Program should speak with Professor Sinclair.
