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.

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.
