Summer Study Abroad Opportunity in China

Truman students now have the opportunity to study abroad this summer in China at Shanghai University, May 20-June 29.

Prior knowledge of the Chinese language is not a requirement, as language courses for all levels will be offered, in addition to courses on literature, history, the economy and calligraphy. Students can earn six to seven Truman credit hours through the program.

During the trip, students will tour, among other attractions, the Chinese capitol city of Beijing, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the National Opera House, Tiananmen Square, the Chairman Mao Museum, and sites of the 2008 Olympic Games and the World Expo, which starts in May.

Participating students will gain knowledge of the language and culture in addition to experiencing personal contact with Shanghai University students and the Chinese people.

The cost for the four-week program is approximately $4,248 plus Truman tuition for six or seven credit hours. The price includes international transportation, insurance, Shanghai University tuition, textbooks and an on-campus dorm room. Transportation and lodging costs are also covered.

Students must have at least a 2.50 grade point average to participate. Contact Julie Minn at for more information.
