CHINA – Fudan University, Shanghai, Fall 2019

Through international academic experiences, the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) inspires students to explore and transform their lives, UC, and the world. Since 1962, UCEAP has supported this mission, serving some 100,000 students across all 10 UC campuses and over 32,000 international exchange students. Sustained by strong academic excellence, spirited faculty collaboration and an interrelated support system, UCEAP produces future global citizens and thought leaders.


The Global and International Studies (GIS) program at Fudan University consists of a series of English-language semester courses that concentrate on the study of the processes, manifestations, and debates of globalization. UC and Fudan University students take courses together, pursue research projects, and engage in critical thinking about globalization and its related impact on social, cultural, environmental, political, and economic issues.

The curriculum consists of upper-division, interdisciplinary and comparative courses which concentrate on globalization and the associated debates, international relations, economics, and culture of China. Courses are taught by UC faculty or may be, upon request, co-taught in English by Fudan University and UC faculty. Associated tutorial or discussion session provided by UC faculty.

Ladder-rank faculty in the social sciences or humanities are invited to apply for a teaching position in the UC-Fudan Global and International Studies (GIS) for Fall Semester, 2019.

 Visiting Faculty – Chinese language ability desirable, but not required.

 Students – There is no language prerequisite for students; instruction is provided in English.

Social Sciences (Global Studies, International Studies, Global Economics, Political Science, Sociology, International Relations, etc.) or Humanities (Cultural Studies, Literature, Media Studies, etc.) preferred, but all fields related to contemporary China will be considered.

UC Visiting Professor will be required to teach, or co-teach, the primary required course that constitutes the core course of the program curriculum. The core course is projected to have an average enrollment of 50 students, depending on student applications and interest. Faculty will have some latitude in determining the structure, content, and activities of the course listed below.

Debating Globalization: This core course is required for all UC students and may be co-taught with a Fudan University faculty member, dependent on identification of faculty member with similar or complementary interests. The course deals with the process of, and debates concerning, globalization, China's responses and contributions to globalization, the impacts of globalization on Chinese society, culture and economy, and the unique history and role of Shanghai in China, the Pacific region and the world. This course should capitalize on the Shanghai setting to encourage out-of-classroom exploration of Shanghai related to associated processes, changes, and developments. Course should be appropriate for accomplished, advanced undergraduates with no prior training in the discipline.

The Fudan GIS is offered at the Handan campus of Fudan University in the Yangpu District of northeast Shanghai. The EAP Study Center is located on the Fudan University campus.


A UC Faculty Director and staff assist UC students and UC instructors with many details of the program.
