2012 China Tour

So excited! The SJSU Communication Studies department is moving forward with a summer study tour in China. Here's the pitch...

Visit Beijing and earn four upper division units in communication studies!

This summer (June 18 to July 10), Dr. Andrew Wood is leading an intercultural communication study abroad program to China, with a special emphasis on tourism, modernity, and urban life.

Students will stay at Communication University of China, which provides comfortable dormitory housing, low-cost meals, and easy access to the sights of Beijing. Classes focus on conversation and real-life exploration, and you will have lots of free time. That means opportunities to climb the Great Wall, wander the Forbidden City, experience the Peking Opera, and more.

Pricing (excluding airfare and visa fees) is about $2,500, which covers housing, course fees, food, and several local tours. Cost for airfare and visa fees is an additional $1,500. The course meets COMM 161F requirements, but course substitutions can be made if you've already taken that class. If you're a communication major, you should apply for this terrific opportunity.

Want to learn more?

* Step One: Contact the course instructor:

* Step Two: Attend an orientation meeting. Choose either Wednesday, September 28th (12 to 1 p.m.) or Thursday, September 29th (12 to 1 p.m.).
