New undergraduate course

ATTENTION!! International students who speak Chinese and U.S. students of all backgrounds interested in China!

Semester: Fall 2008

Course Title: Chinese International/U.S. Domestic Student Dialogue

Course number: Psychology 122 / Sociology 122 / UC 122 (for undergraduates) Section: 001 Credits: 2

Course description: Chinese international students (i.e., Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, etc.) and U.S. domestic students will be balanced in groups of 5-7 each to participate in meaningful dialogue. This course is a rare opportunity to learn from other students what diversity means in the United States and in the Chinese Diaspora. Students will discuss relevant reading material and they will explore their own and the other students' experiences. The goal is to create a setting in which students engage in open and constructive dialogue, learning, and exploration concerning issues of intergroup relations, conflict and community.

Due to high demand, students who do not attend the mass meeting on the first day of class will be withdrawn from the course.
