About this Program

The 21st Century City program examines the history of Shanghai, its process of rapid urbanization, and China's interface with the West in this dynamic Asian center. The 15-credit semester is comprised of a required core class and Chinese language along with two electives.

About Shanghai

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to study international trade or sustainable urbanization? Shanghai is your city.
